Clement of Alexandria's First Letter to the Corinthians Did Not Contain Chapter 16

I went through all the references to chapter 16 - not only are there no references to the chapter in the writings of Clement, but no one before the fourth century has any clue about this chapter. It's a fake. The question now is whether Clement's 1 Corinthians continued further using material from another letter. I think so but I am going to have think about this a while longer.
