Codex Schoyen; Schmitz-Mink mae 2
Papyrus codex containing the gospel of Matthew in Coptic (Mesokemic corpus). Description from PAThs: The text opens at ch. 5:38 and goes more or less continuously to the end.
The codex is the earliest Matthew in any Coptic dialect. The 11 chapters, 6-9, 13-17, 22 and 28, and a great number of verses elsewhere, are in addition the earliest witnesses to these parts of the Bible. The text is unique, not following any Coptic nor Greek manuscripts known of Matthew. The earliest Matthew version of the Lord's Prayer are to be found in lines 13-19. The reasons of these peculiarities are largly debated.
