Idling fecklessly ...

 ... among some old off-prints from the Zeitschrift fuer Papyrologie und Epigraphik containing papers by the late and still lamented Martin West, I was struck by this phrase: "It is a delightful thing to read a neatly written papyrus containing real digammas".

Now ... doesn't that sentence embody the veritable Quinta Essentia of Oxford?
