MPER N.S. XXIX 27 + 28; Gregory-Aland 0215; Gregory-Aland 059
Parchment fragments containing the second gospel of Mark 15:20-38.
Two fragments from a miniature codex, presenting one of the earliest witnesses to this section of Mark; see Jongkind 2014.
Fragment A measures 5,4 x 5 cm (G 36112) and preserves the bottom margin of the folio; Fragment B measures 9,4 x 9,7 cm (G 39779), and preserves parts of the top- and side margins. Both fragments present the text on the hair-side as preceding the flesh-side, and the context suggests that the fragments belong to coinciding folios. Curiously, the codex appears to be missing the verse 15:28, a lacuna which is adttested in other witnesses to the Gospel of Mark.
A small fragment (beyond the folding-line) conjoined to G 39779 offers some difficulties, as the letters are seemingly written in a different hand and in different ink, and perhaps preserving a separate text beyond the Gospel of Mark (Jungkind suggests that the text-addition preserves a type of notes; see Jungkind 2014).
The hand is described as a Biblical majuscule.
