Uncial 064

Template:New Testament manuscript infobox

Uncial 064 designated by (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 10 (von Soden), is a Greek uncial codex of the New Testament, on parchment leaves. Formerly it was labelled by Θe.[1] Palimpsest.


The manuscript contains the gospels of Matt 25:15 — Mark 5:20. Paleographically it has been assigned to the 6th century. The text is written in two columns per page, 25 lines per page. At the time Caspar René Gregory originally allocated numbers to manuscripts, it was not known with certainty that uncials 064, 074 and 090 were from the one manuscript, because they are held in three locations:

codex 064 in Vernadsky National Library of Ukraine (Petrov 17), Kiev
codex 074 in Saint Catherine's Monastery, Mount Sinai (Harris 10)
codex 090 in National Library of Russia, Saint Petersburg (Gr. 276).[2]

It is a palimpsest. The upper text contains Syriac liturgica.[3]

The Greek text of these codecs are a representatives of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[3]

Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 6th century.[4]
