Abstract There are at least two New Testament papyri fragments from codices that show signs of reuse, P91 and P23. What was the intent of their reuse? The contents of the reconstructed pages from which they have broken off may enable us to answer the question. For P91 a tentative reconstruction of the text on the leaf from which it has broken away suggests that it was used as an amulet for healing. For P23 it seems the reason may have been one of consolation during some period of difficulty.
