Chapter Summary

The MS. numbered Or. 1699 II x in the University Library in Cambridge is part of the Thompson donation. It consists of a bifolium written on parchment. The contents (most of the last two chapters of the Epistle to Titus and the whole of the Epistle to Philemon) are remarkable because of the way that the two languages, Greek and Sahidic Coptic, are recorded. This chapter addresses the question: why is there an intrusion of a section of Titus in Greek. The nature of the errors suggests that the text was copied, not dictated. Whatever the history of this peculiar text, what we have is a fragment that contains Greek and Sahidic Coptic, but it is not truly a bilingual MS. as conventionally understood. Nevertheless it merits inclusion in the register of NT Greek uncials where it has the number 0205.

Keywords: Greek-Coptic fragment; Sahidic; Titus-Philemontus
