A fragment of a book-roll from Oxyrhynchus, dated by its handwriting to the second/third century AD, is here briefly presented as a case-study in the reading and restoration of previously unknown Greek texts. It is argued that the fragment is part of a choral lyric from an Athenian Old Comedy, perhaps the Ploutoi of Cratinus, and that it may mention Pericles at a time not long before his death in 429 BC.
