History

Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 10th-century.[2][6]

The manuscript was examined by Johann Jakob Griesbach. Griesbach was the first who observed similarities between Londoner fragment (0121a) and Hamburger fragment (0121b), and supposed that they came from the same manuscript.[7]

The codex now is located in the British Museum (Harley 5613), in London. It was classified together with Uncial 0121b as the same manuscript, but now it is sure, they belonged to the different manuscripts.[8]
