I am curious. Because the vast collection of _logia_ of Jesus collected
by Papias has long vanished (why?) and we do not know what was in it with
the exception of a few repeated in passing elsewhere, how can one know
what Papias knew? I have often wondered why such an interesting
collection of sayings attributed to Jesus vanished.
