New Romans Fragment

New within the past few days in Hobby Lobby’s collection of biblical antiquities is a small fragment from Rom 910 (HT: Peter Williams). For the fragment’s brief spot on CNN, see here. The fragment’s proposed date is the mid-second century. The side displayed in the CNN footage contains five lines. The image quality isn’t fantastic, but the last letters on the fragment look like they could be ΕΚΤΟΥ, which could seem to put that part of the fragment at Rom 9:12 or 21. If line 3 begins ΚΡΙ and line 4 ends ΗΣ*ΣΟΥ, could we then be looking at Rom 9:20–21 here?
