Uncial 0116 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 58 (Soden);[1] is a Greek uncial manuscript of the New Testament, dated paleographically to the 8th-century.[2] Formerly it was labelled at first by R (Griesbach and Scholz), then by Wb (Tischendorf), because letter R was reserved for Codex Nitriensis.[3]


The codex contains a small parts of the Matthew 19:14-28; 20:23-21:2; 26:52-27:1; Mark 13:21-14:67; Luke 3:1-4:20,[4] on 14 thick parchment leaves (26 cm by 20 cm). The text is written in two columns per page, 25 lines per page, in oblong uncial letters, leaning to the right.[3] It contains the Ammonian Sections numbers, without references to the Eusebian Canons (erased), and lectionary markings at the margin (for liturgical use).[5]

It is a palimpsests.[2]

The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[2]


Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 8th-century.[2][6]

The codex was examined by Griesbach and Scholz. In 1843 it was exposed to chemicals by Tischendorf, who collated its text. Tischendorf pronounces to be an Evangelistarium.[5][7]

The codex now is located in the Biblioteca Nazionale (II C 15), in Naples.[2][6]
