Source

The fragmentary parchment leaf P. Vindob. G 22.683 belongs to the papyrus collection in Vienna. The leaf has been reassembled from three disjointed fragments. The document is dated on palaeographical grounds.

Discussion

The purpose of listing these shrines is not clear, but the fragments might be part of a longer list of places where services were planned to take place during the month of Pachon. It has also been suggested that this might be a list of literary works, i.e. of martyrdom accounts of the listed saints.
