Papyrus 96 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), designated by 96, is a copy of the New Testament in Greek and Coptic. It is a diglot papyrus manuscript of the Gospel of Matthew. The surviving texts of Matthew are verses 3:10-12 (Coptic, Greek lost), 3:13-15 (Greek, Coptic lost). The manuscript paleographically has been assigned to the 6th century.


The Greek text of this manuscript probably is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type, though the extant portion is too fragmentary for certainty. It is still not assigned to any of Aland's Categories of New Testament manuscripts.[1]


The manuscript is currently housed at the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek (Pap. K. 7244) at Vienna.[1][2]
