## Description

The Greek text of this codex is too short to put in a family. Grenfell and Hunt noticed its agreement with Codex Bezae, 1597, and some Old-Latin manuscripts.[2] According to Aland it is a "free text" and it was placed by him in Category I.[3] According to Bruce M. Metzger and David Alan Black[4] the manuscript might be related to the Western text-type, but Philip Comfort stated "the fragment is too small to be certain of its textual character".[1]

It is currently housed at the Bodleian Library, Gr. bibl. g. 4 (P) in Oxford.[3][5]
