Papyrus 24

Papyrus 24 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), designated by siglum 𝔓24, is an early copy of the New Testament in Greek. It is a papyrus manuscript of the Book of Revelation, it contains only Revelation 5:5-8; 6:5-8. The manuscript paleographically has been assigned to the early 4th century.[1]


Originally it was written on a large leaf (approximately 19 by 28 cm). It is the earliest manuscript which has survived to the present day with the text of Rev. 5-6.[2] It uses letter Ζ for επτα (seven).

The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type (rather proto-Alexandrian). Aland placed it in Category I.[1] This manuscript exhibits textual agreement with Papyrus 18, Papyrus 47, and Codex Sinaiticus, but the surviving fragment is too small to determine its overall textual affinities.[2]

It is currently housed at the Franklin Trask Library Andover Newton Theological School (OP 1230) in Newton, Massachusetts.[1][3]
