Papyrus 103 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), designated by \mathfrak{P}103, is a copy of the New Testament in Greek. It is a papyrus manuscript of the Gospel of Matthew.

Description[edit]

The surviving texts of Matthew are verses 13:55-56; 14:3-5, they are in a fragmentary condition. The manuscript palaeographically has been assigned to the late 2nd or early 3rd century.

Probably together with Papyrus 77 it belonged to the same codex.[1]

Text

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type. According to Comfort it is proto-Alexandrian text.

In Matthew 13:55, the name of Jesus' second brother reads [...]ης so that both Ἰωάννης (John) and Ἰωσῆς (Joses) are possible original readings.
