Gen. (fragm.), I Macc., IV Macc., I Esdr. 1:1–4:28 (inf.). | Mutilated at the beginning and end. The f. 222 is misplaced, it belongs after f. 82. | Collation: Codex mixtus in case of Genesis (ed. Wevers), I Macc. (ed. Kappler), and I Esdr. (ed. Hanhart). In case of the Testamenta XII patriarcharum, this textual witness is most important since it contains two additions in accordance with the Aramaic Levi Document.
