Codex Tischendorfianus I, designated by Uncial 0106 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 40 (Soden), is a Greek uncial manuscript of the New Testament on parchment. It is dated palaeographically to the 7th-century. The manuscript is fragmentary.


The codex contains a small part of the Gospel of Matthew 12:17-19.23-25; 13:32; 13:36-15:26 on five elegant parchment leaves (30 centimetres (12 in) by 22 centimetres (8.7 in)). It is written in one column per page, 20 lines per page, in large uncial letters.[1] The writing is elegant, it uses breathings and accents. The letters are leaned into right.[2]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters). There is also another division according to the smaller Ammonian Sections, with references to the Eusebian Canons.[2]

Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 7th-century.[1][3]

The manuscript was brought by Constantin von Tischendorf in 1845 and in 1853 from Sinai. Tischendorf edited its text in Monumenta sacra inedita.[4]

The codex is divided, and located in three places:

From the same manuscript originated other four leaves now catalogued as Uncial 0119. It was discovered by J. Rendel Harris at Sinai, who examined it.[6] Hermann von Soden designed it as ε 63. It is still housed in the Saint Catherine's Monastery (Sinai Harris 8, 56,8 ff.) at Sinai peninsula.

The Greek text of this codex is a mixture of text-type. Aland placed it in Category III.[1]
