Uncial 061 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), α 1035 (Soden); is a Greek uncial manuscript of the New Testament, dated palaeographically to the 5th century.


The codex contains a part of the First Epistle to Timothy (3:15-16; 4:1-3; 6:2-8), on two small leaves (14 cm by 12 cm), both damaged. The text is written in one column per page, 19 lines per page.[1]

It is an interesting witness of New Testament scripture as it is one of the oldest Greek manuscripts containing 1 John 5:7 "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."

The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type with some singular readings. Aland placed it in Category V.[1]

Codex 061 is cited in the Textual Apparatus of the UBS-4, but not in that of the Nestle-Aland edition. It has a singular reading of ᾧ ἐφανερώθη (he revealed) in 1 Timothy 3:16.[2]

It is dated by the INTF to the 5th century.[3]

The codex is located now in Louvre (Ms. E 7332), in Paris.[1]
