Codex Dublinensis designated by Z or 035 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 26 (von Soden), is a Greek uncial manuscript of the Gospels, dated palaeographically to the 6th century. The manuscript is lacunose.
The codex contains a portions of the text of Gospel of Matthew, on 32 parchment leaves (27 cm by 20 cm), with numerous lacunae. The text is written in one column per page, 21 lines per column, in 27 letters in line.
It is a palimpsest. The upper text is a patristic written in a minuscule hand, John Chrysostom contributing has the largest share. The codex contains the Ammonian Sections, but there is no the Eusebian Canons. No breathings or accents. The Old Testament quotations are indicated by >. Letter "mu" is very peculiar, it looks like inverted Π.
Matthew 1:17-2:6, 2:13-20, 4:4-13, 5:45-6:15, 7:16-8:6, 10:40-11:18, 12:43-13:11, 13:57-14:19, 15:13-23, 17:9-17, 17:26-18:6, 19:4-12, 21-28, 20:7-21:8, 21:23-30, 22:16-25, 22:37-23:3, 23:15-23, 24:15-25, 25:1-11, 26:21-29, 62-71.
The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type, with many allien readings. The Alexandrian text is familiar to the Codex Sinaiticus. Aland placed it in Category III.
In Matthew 20:23 it does not contain και το βαπτισμα ο εγω βαπτιζομαι βαπτισθησεσθε (and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with), as in codices Sinaiticus, B, D, L, Θ, 085, f1, f13, it, syrs, c, copsa.
The codex was discovered by John Barrett in 1787, under some cursive writing. Barrett published its text in 1801, but with errors. The codex was exposed to chemicals by Tregelles, and was deciphered by him in 1853. Tregelles added about 200 letters to the text of Barrett.
