Text Language

The surviving parchment leaf contains text in a minuscule Greek script from the 12th century. The text is laid out in two columns, at least 25 lines per column. We note two types (& sizes) of initials -at the beginning of the rows, which are decorated. Most of them are placed to the left of the main body text indicating new sections.

Recto: Matthew 7:12-19.

Verso (first column): Matthew 7:20-21 & commemorations of saints and martyrs for October 14. Verso (second column): Luke 10:16-19.
