Parts of Hippocrates, De mulierum affectibus 1.1 (P.Köln 7.311 + P.Oxy. 80.5221). The two papyrus fragments (Köln: 2.5 x 4.5 cm; Oxy.: 6,5 x 15 cm) have been recognized as belonging to the same roll, coming from Oxyrhynchus, originally used on the recto to record a tax list and subsequently reused on the verso across the fibres to transcribe Hippocrates' treatise De muliebribus (περὶ γυναικείων). The Köln scrap is too fragmentary to allow a plausible reconstruction of the lines (see discussion by F. Adorno in CPF and by D. Leith in the Oxy. edition; some parallels may be found with §§ 6.8 = p. 88,13-17 Grensemann), while the Oxy. piece contains Hp. Mul. 1.1,8-14 for sure, with interesting variants with respect to the manuscript tradition. P.Oxy. 5221,16-19 overlaps with P.Ant. 3.184 (codex, 6th cent.), the only other papyrus witness to Mul.. Punctuation is effected by single and double dots. The text is written in a cursive script assigned to the late 2nd-early 3rd c. AD.

(This papyrus has been digitally edited by Francesca Corazza as part of the Project "DIGMEDTEXT - Online Humanities Scholarship: A Digital Medical Library based on Ancient Texts" (ERC-AdG-2013, Grant Agreement no. 339828) funded by the European Research Council at the University of Parma (Principal Investigator: Prof. Isabella Andorlini). The digital edition is mostly based on the previous editions (ed.pr. = M. Gronewald, P.Köln VII 311; ed. alt. = F. Adorno, CPF 1.2.1, 18 10; add. D. Leith, P.Oxy. LXXX 5221).)

  • 2-3.

    The papyrus reads ει[σι instead of εσ[τι attested by manuscript tradition. The supplement πληροῦσθαι ἅτε ἐν γαστρὶ in ll. 2-3 is too long; ἄτε is probably lacking in the papyrus.

  • 6-7.

    The lacuna between the end of l. 6 and the beginning of l. 7 cannot contain the supplement ἐόντο[ς τοῦ] αἵμα[τος] suggested by Ermerins.
