Uncial 0211 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 051 (Soden), is a Greek uncial manuscript of the New Testament, dated paleographically to the 7th century.[1]


The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels, on 258 parchment leaves (27 cm by 19.5 cm). Written in two columns per page, 8 lines per page, in uncial letters.[1]

The text-type of this codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Hermann von Soden classified it to the K1.[2] Aland placed it in Category V.[1]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents the textual family Kx in Luke 1, in Luke 10 it has a mixture of the Byzantine families, in Luke 20 it has mixed text. In Luke 1 it belongs to the textual cluster 1213; it is related to the Codex Campianus in Luke 10 and Luke 20.[2]

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

The manuscript was added to the list of the New Testament manuscripts by Kurt Aland in 1953.[4]

The codex currently is housed at the Georgian National Center of Manuscripts (Gr. 27) in Tbilisi, Georgia (not to be confused with the American state).[1]
