Text

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[4] In Book of Acts some the Western readings.

In Acts 8:39 instead of πνεῦμα κυρίου (spirit of the Lord) it has unusual textual variant πνεῦμα ἅγιον ἐπέπεσεν ἐπὶ τὸν εὐνοῦχον, ἄγγελος δέ κυρίου ἥρπασεν τὸν Φίλιππον (the Holy Spirit fell on the eunuch, and an angel of the Lord caught up Philip) supported by Codex Alexandrinus and several minuscule manuscripts: 94, 103, 307, 322, 323, 453, 467, 945, 1739, 1765, 1891, 2298, 36a, itp, vg, syrh.[5]

History

The manuscript was written by Georgios Baiophoros, a scribe. It was bound later with Uncial 0121a.

The manuscript was examined by Griesbach (Acts 1-8, 1 Peter, 1 John 5, Romans, 1 Cor, 2 Cor 3, Ephesians, Rev) and Scholz. C. R. Gregory saw it in 1883.[3]

Formerly it was designated by 60a, 63p, and 29r. In 1908 Gregory gave the number 385 to it.[1]

The manuscript is currently housed at the British Library (Harley 5613) in London.[2]
