Schøyen MS 187; Beinecke P. CtYBR 4475; Rahlfs 866: 6 folios of an Exodus codex. The Schøyen pages contain Exodus 4:17-6:12 on two consecutive bi-folios and 7:12-21 on one single page. Dated by its ed.pr. into the first half of the 4th c., it is among the oldest surviving documents of the Exodus. Fragments of the codex are spread across university and private collections, including Yale’s Beinecke Library (Exodus 6:12-27) and the Antonovich Collection in Paris (Exodus 6:28-7:11), which each house a page missing from the Schøyen manuscript. Possibly connected to the codex fragment at the Ashland Theological Seminary (Exodus 10:3-5 & 10:8-9) and the fragments of two anonymous private owners edited in deSilva 2006 & 2007.
