To the present day survived only two pieces from one leaf. The surviving texts of John are verses 21:11-14,22-24, they are in a fragmentary condition. The manuscript paleographically had been assigned to the 4th or 5th century (INTF). It was written by irregular hand.
It uses nomina sacra. Name Ιησους (Jesus) is abbreviated to ΙΗΣ (majority of manuscripts used abbreviation ΙΣ). Number "one hundred and fifty-three" is written in abbreviation — ΡΝΓ.
The Greek text of this codex probably is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type.
|Ανεβη ουν Σιμων Πετρος και ειλ||So Simon Peter went aboard and|
|κυσεν το δικτυον εις την γην μεσ||hauled the net ashore, full|
|τον ιχθυων μεγαλων ΡΝΓ και το||of large fish, a 153 of them; and|
|σουτων οντων ουκ εσχισθη το δικ||although there were so many, the net was not|
|τυον λεγει αυτοις ο ΙΗΣ δευτε αριστη||torn. Jesus said to them, “Come and have|
|σατε ουδεις δε ετολμα των μαθητων ε||breakfast.” Now none of the disciples dared|
|ξετασαι αυτων Συ τις ει ειδοτες οτι||ask him, “Who are you?” They knew|
|ο ΚΣ εστιν ερχεται ΙΗΣ και λαμ||it was the Lord. Jesus came and took|
|βανει τον αρτον και διδωσιν αυτοις||the bread and gave it to them,|
|και το οψαριον ομοιως τουτο ηδη||and so with the fish. This was now|
|τριτον εφανερωθη τοις μαθηταις||the third time that He was revealed to the disciples|
|εγερθεις εκ νεκρων||after He was raised from the dead.|
