Unpublished Oxyrhynchus biblical papyri

THE EGYPT EXPLORATION SOCIETY: Unpublished EES biblical papyri. In brief, among the unpublished papyrus fragments from Oxyrhynchus, there are 20 New Testament fragments, 80 Septuagint (i.e., Greek Old Testament) fragments, and 10 patristic fragments. Follow the link for a few more details.

I hope they publish a more detailed list of which books the fragments come from. Also, I wonder if they are aware of any unpublished fragments of Old Testament pseudepigrapha? The most recent volume included some of Jannes and Jambres.
