Salonius 1927: 109-110; Gregory-Aland 057
Parchment fragment containing Luke Acts of the Apostles 3:5–6 and 10–12.
The fragment belonged to a parchment sheet of originally approx. 10 x 13 cm (estimated by the ed. pr.) which would have contained 27 lines per page. The text is divided into two columns (ca. 5 cm wide), with 6 lines remaining in col. I and 15 in col. II (VanHaelst gives 8 and 16 lines respectively). The hair-side remains blank.
The script is a careful, rounded book hand, which suggests a date within the turn of the 4/5 c. The letters are quite small, measuring approx 2 mm tall.
Punctuation occurs in the shape of dicola or a high point, and there are no abbreviations or nomina sacra (e.g. ισραηλ[ιται], commonly abbreviated, is written out in full in col. II l. 15-16). Verse end is demarcated by a horizontal stroke, as can be visible in col. II l. 4/5.
