"It was examined by Birch"
- It is not easy to read old manuscripts. Even experts made errors (Wettstein made over 1000 errors in Minuscule 1). "Examined" means: transcript, collated, described manuscript, etc. It is very important who described the manuscript as the first. Birch's examination of manuscript usually was limited to deciphering their colophons. He collated very few manuscripts. About examination of the manuscript you can read with details in the articles Codex Sinaiticus, Codex Alexandrinus, Codex Vaticanus, etc. Leszek Jańczuk (talk) 16:36, 30 August 2009 (UTC)
