It seems a wrestling manual has been uncovered dated A.D. 200.

Actually, Oxyrhinchous iii 466 should have been published a century ago. (I don't have a library available to verify this.)

It is bizarre in the extreme to see it listed as a newsarticle of a recent discovery. The news media in question just lost a few points in reliability.

Could've, should've, would've — apparently it was not since it is located at Columbia University rather than with the other papyri from Oxyrhynchus. It isn't in the Duke database of papyri.
