Uncial 0230

Uncial 0230 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), is a Greek-Latin uncial manuscript of the New Testament. The manuscript palaeographically has been assigned to the 4th century.[1]


The manuscript contains a small parts of the Epistle to the Ephesians 6:11-12 in Greek and Ephesians 6:5-6 in Latin, on 1 parchment leaf (34 by 27 cm).[2] It is written in two columns per page. Only 4 lines has preserved (because of its fragmentary),[1] but the original manuscripts was written in 19-24 per page. It is written colometrically. It has some kind of relationship to Codex Claromontanus.[3]

The form of the letter Mu shows that the scribe was accustomed to the Coptic alphabet.[4]

The Greek text of this codex is too brief to classify. Aland did not place it in any Category.[1] It does not contain any variant readings of real importance for textual critics.[4]


The fragment was found near Antinoe in Egypt. It was published as 1306, among the Papiri Greci e Latini. On the list of the Greek New Testament manuscripts it has received the number 0230. In the Beuron edition of the Vetus Latina the Latin text has received the number 85.[4]

Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 4th century.[1][2]

It was described by Cardinal Mercati.[5]

The codex formerly was housed at the Laurentian Library (PSI 1306), in Florence.[1] The owner of the codex is unknown.[2]
