Family K1 is a small group of the New Testament manuscripts. It belongs to the Byzantine text-type as one of the textual families of this group. It has five uncials, and several early minuscules. It is one of the smallest subfamilies of the Byzantine text-type, but one of the oldest.
The group was discovered by Hermann von Soden and designated by him with the symbol K1. Wisse included this group to the Kx (and Ki), and according to him it is the only subgroup or cluster of Kx. But the opinion of Wisse is based on a small sample size, only three chapters of Luke — chapters 1; 10; and 20. Based on age alone, it appears that K1 is independent of Kx. The leading members of the group, according to Soden, are manuscripts S, V, and Ω.
The texts of Matthew 16:2b–3 (the signs of the times), Luke 22:43-44, John 5:3.4, and the Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53–8:11) are marked with an asterisk (※) as doubtful. The text of Mark 16:8-20 has not numbered by κεφαλαια (chapters) at the margin and their τιτλοι (titles) at the top.
The group probably evolved from Family E. It represents the earliest stage of the Kappa-text.
