Uncial 069 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 12 (Soden), [1] is a Greek uncial manuscript of the New Testament, dated paleographically to the 5th century.

Contents

Description

The codex contains very small part of the Gospel of Mark 10:50.51; 11:11.12, on one parchment leaf (8 cm by 4,5 cm). The text is written in one column per page, 25 lines per page, [2] 11-15 letters in line, [3] in a calligraphic uncial hand. [4] The letters A and M are not typical Egyptian. [3]

The nomina sacra are written in an abbreviated way.

Text

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category III. [2] It concurs with Codex Alexandrinus, and the parts preserved support the Textus Receptus reading at all nine points of variation from other early uncials. [4] It could be a member of the Family Π. The text is too brief for certainty.
