Uncial 075 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), Οπ3 (Soden), is a Greek uncial manuscript of the New Testament, dated palaeographically to the 10th century. Formerly it was designated by ג.[1] It was also classified as minuscule codex 382p.


The codex contains the Pauline epistles, on 333 parchment leaves, with lacunae (Romans; 1 Corinthians 1:1-15:28; Hebrews 11:38-13:25).[2] The text is written in one column per page, 31 lines per page,[3] in semi-uncial letters. The biblical text is surrounded by a commentary (catena).[4] Size 27 cm by 19 cm.[3]

The leaves 61-65, 366-369 were supplied by a later hand (in minuscule) in the 13th century.[4]

The Greek text of this codex is mostly Byzantine with some Alexandrian readings. Aland placed it in Category III.[5]


Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 10th century.[6]

The manuscript was written by monk Sabbas.[1] Formerly it was held in Kosinitza. C. R. Gregory saw the manuscript in 1886.[4] The manuscript was classified by Gregory as minuscule 382.[4] In 1908 Gregory gave siglum 075 to it.

It is currently housed at the National Library of Greece (Gr. 100, fol. 46-378), in Athens.[3]
