Abbreviations for papyrological sources appear in J. F. Oates et al., Checklist of Editions of Greek and Latin Papyri, Ostraca and Tablets, 4th ed. (Bulletin of the American Society of Papyrologists Supplement 7, 1992).
Where abbreviations are listed for both the name of an author and the title of his work, the abbreviation for the title appears immediately after the abbreviation for the author's name. Please note one exception: the abbreviation Ep. (for Epistulae) appears only once, although the letters of various authors are cited.
