P.Oxy. X 1227; Gregory-Aland P21; Gregory-Aland 𝔓21; NT21
A severly fragmented piece of a folio containing the 2 Gospel of Matthew 12-26. It is estimated that the folio originally contained 32-33 lines of text; see Blumell / wayment 2015: 190.
The script is an upright uncial, and it is written in brown ink with variation between light and heavy strokes. No punctuation is visible except a high point in l. 5 (verso), and a rough breathing can be found in l. 11 (ὁ Σ[ατανας]).
There is a unique reading in l. 4 (the addition of a οὕτω to Matt 12:32) and possibly also in l. 6 of the recto; see ed. pr. In several instances, the text agrees with the MS D, i.a. in the spelling of Βεελζεβού in Matt 12:24 in agreement with D and other Byzantine MSS.
