A Textual Commentary On Ephesians 6:6

(a) At Venice, I collated the Codex Nanii (U of the Gospels), now in the library of St. Mark : no collation of this MS. had been previously published, except as to particular places. Although the general text is that of the later copies, yet in many remarkable readings it accords with the Alexandrian (or more ancient) class of MSS. The librarians at St. Mark’s, Venice, who kindly afforded me the fullest access to all that I wanted, were Dr. GIUSEPPE VALENTINELLI, and (the late) Signor ANDREA BARETTA. Those who know how MONTFAUCON was treated, a century and a half ago, at the library of St. Mark (see his “Diarium Italicum,” page 41) will understand how gladly I acknowledge this courtesy. I know by experience what Montfaucon de scribes, for I have met elsewhere with the same kind of exclusion.†

† In speaking of this MS., I may mention that it is the only uncial copy in which I remember to have observed a post-scribed iota. In this MS. this is found once, Matt. xxv. 15, where ὡῖ (i.e. ) occurs. I have not seen a sub-scribed iota in any uncial document. Lachmann points out that in the Codex Bezæ, Mar. i. 34, ηιδισαν (i.e. ᾔδεισαν ) occurs ; and that in the Codex Boernerianus (G Epp.), Eph. vi. 6, is found Ηι τις, where the blundering copyist may have thought that ἥτις was a word in which the iota might or should be added.
