Uncial 0203

Uncial 0129 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), α 1037 (Soden), is a Greek-Coptic diglot uncial manuscript of the New Testament, dated paleographically to the 9th-century.


The codex contains a small part of the Pauline epistles, on two parchment leaves (35 cm by 25.5 cm). The text is written in two columns per page, 33 lines per page, in uncial letters.[1]

The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type. Kurt Aland did not place it in any Category.[1]

The codex is located now at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Copt. 129,11) in Paris.[1]

This manuscript was part of the same codex to which Uncial 0203[2] and Lectionary 1575 ( 1575) belonged. 0129 and 0203 were classified as uncials manuscripts, but when was discovered that they belonged to the same manuscript as 1575, it was shown they were parts of the same lectionary.

Uncial 0203 is located at the British Library in London. 1575 is located at the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek (Pap. K. 16.17) in Vienna.[1][3]

It is dated by the INTF to the 9th-century.[3]
