Uncial 0232 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), is a Greek uncial manuscript of the New Testament. The manuscript palaeographically has been assigned to the 5th or 6th century.

It contains a small parts of the Second Epistle of John (1-9), on 1 parchment leaf (10 cm by 9 cm). The text is written in one column per page, 20 lines per page.[1][2]

The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type. Aland placed it in Category II.[1]

Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 5th or 6th century.[1][2]

Don Barker proposes a wider and earlier range of dates for Uncial 0232, along with Papyrus 39, Papyrus 88 and Uncial 0206; and states that all four could be dated as early as the late second century or as late as the end of the fourth century.[3]

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

The codex is housed at the Ashmolean Museum (P. Ant. 12), in Oxford.[1]
