Greek New Finds M120

Sinai Greek New Finds M120 is an incomplete manuscript of the Acts of the Apostles and the Epistles of Saint Paul. It is written on parchment, and contains 186 folia. The manuscript has been dated to the fourteenth century.

Folio 54 verso contains a decorative border and the beginning of Saint Paul’s Epistle to the Romans.

Παῦλος δοῦλος Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ κλητὸς ἀπόστολος ἀφωρισμένος εἰς εὐαγγέλιον θεοῦ.

Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God.

It must have taken great skill and experience to create an opening initial with the decorative elements as if they were intertwined.
