ACTS, MICHIGAN PAPYRUS OF, originally a papyrus about 27 x 14 cm in size (15 x 10 cm extant) with thirty-six lines to the page, of which twenty-one remain. It contains Acts 18:27-19:6, and 19:12-16. According to Sanders, it is from 200-250; Aland says about 300, and Roberts and Skeat place it in the third/fourth century. Probably deriving from the Fayyum, the text essentially agrees with that of Codex Bezae (D); hence the attestation of this text type in Egypt is important.
In editions of the Greek New Testament this papyrus is designated P 38. Its inventory number in the Michigan collection is 1571, and it has been edited by H. A. Sanders as text 138 in Miscellaneous Papyri (Ann Arbor, 1936 [P. Mich. 3]).
