Uncial 0121a

Uncial 0121a (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), α 1031 (Soden),[1] is a Greek uncial manuscript of the New Testament, dated paleographically to the 10th-century.


The codex contains a parts of the 1 Corrinthians 15:52-2 Corinthians 1:15; 10:13-12:5 on two parchment leaves (26 cm by 21 cm). The text is written in two columns per page, 38 lines per page, in small uncial letters,[2] in red ink. It has errors of iota adscriptum (τηι for τῃ).[3]

The Greek text of this codex is a mixture of text-types. Aland placed it in Category III.[2]

In 1 Corinthians 15:54 it lacks το φθαρτον τουτο ενδυσηται αφθαρσιαν και along with 088, 0243, 1175, 1739;[4]

In 2 Corinthians 1:10 it reads τηλικουτου θανατου; the reading is supported by א, A, B, C, Dgr, Ggr, K, P, Ψ, 0209, 0243, 33, 81, 88, 104, 181, 326, 330, 436, 451, 614, 1241, 1739, 1877, 1881, 1962, 1984, 1985, 2127, 2492, 2495, Byz.[5]


Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 10th-century.[2][6]

The manuscript was examined by Johann Jakob Griesbach. Griesbach was the first who observed similarities between Londoner fragment (0121a) and Hamburger fragment (0121b), and supposed that they came from the same manuscript.[7]

The codex now is located in the British Museum (Harley 5613), in London. It was classified together with Uncial 0121b as the same manuscript, but now it is sure, they belonged to the different manuscripts.[8]
