The Oxyrhynchus papyrus containing a complete diagram (dated A.D. 75-125) from Euclid's Elements has a red 29 on it that was presumably written there by B. P. Grenfell or A. S. Hunt of Oxford University. The fragment is now in the storage vaults of the Penn Museum (University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology).
