Codex Marshall Or. 6, is a Bohairic, uncial manuscript of the New Testament, on a paper. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 16th century.[1]


It contains the text of the Gospel of John on 192 paper leaves (11.3 by 7). The text is written in 1 column per page, 12-14 lines per page.[1] It contains numerals of the κεφαλαια (in Coptic) at the left margin, the Ammonian Sections, (not the Eusebian Canons), and portrait of John, the Evangelist.[1]

The manuscript lacks John 5:3.4 (the descent of the angel) and Pericope Adulterae (7:53-8:11). According to Scrivener it is comparatively recent but interesting manuscript.[2][3]

It has no date recorded. The manuscript was examined by Lighfoot and Headlam.[1] Horner used it in his edition of the Bohairic New Testament.[4]

Currently it is housed at the Bodleian Library (Marshall Or. 99) in Oxford.
