Uncial 071

Uncial 071 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 015 (Soden),[1] is a Greek uncial manuscript of the New Testament, dated paleographically to the 5th or 6th century. It came from Oxyrhynchus.


The codex contains a small part of the Gospel of Matthew 1:21-24; 1:25-2:2, on one parchment leaf (7 cm by 9.5 cm). It is written in one column per page, 13 lines per page.[2]

Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 5th or 6th century.[2][3]


The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type, in close relationship with Codex Sinaiticus, Vaticanus, and Dublinensis. Aland placed it in Category II.[2]
