I was just looking through my copy of Comfort and Barrett which while, of course, not a facsimile I trust to be accurate. I see no evidence of the Tetragrammaton being used. I see many abbreviations in various cases: QEOS, hUIOS, PATHR, PNEUMA, XRISTOS, even hEBDOMHKONTA.

Subject: [B-Greek] The divine name in Gk MSS
Gentlemen, I am not sure if this a permissible subject on this fine
list, but if it is, can anyone confirm this statement. I had never
heard this. I have no interest at all in "plugging" the divine Name
in Hebrew. or Greek.
"There is manuscript evidence for the tetragrammaton in the NT prior
to 200 A.D. The 2 fullest and most significant Mss dated prior to the
4th Century proving this are P46 and P45, both of which are from
Egypt. It seems these 2 Mss date between 80 -120 years after the
original autographs, and have the tetragrammaton."
