Uncial 080 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 20 (Soden), is a Greek uncial manuscript of the New Testament, dated paleographically to the 6th century.


The codex contains a small part of the Gospel of Mark 9:14-18.20-22; 10:23-24.29,[1] on two purple parchment leaves. Size of the leaves is unknown because of their fragmentary condition. It is written in two columns per page, 18 lines per page,[2] in large uncial letters, in gold. The uncial letters are similar to the Codex Petropolitanus Purpureus.[3]

Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 6th century.[2][4]

Porphyrius Uspensky saw this codex in 1850 and described it.[5] Oscar von Gebhardt made another description of the codex.[3]

One leaf of the codex is located now at the Russian National Library (Gr. 275, 3) in Saint Petersburg, and one leaf in Alexandria (Greek Orthodox Patriarchate 496).[2]

The Greek text of this codex is too brief to certainly classify its text-type. Kurt Aland did not place it to any Category of New Testament manuscripts.[2]
