Cursive 1739 – Manuscript of Acts, the General Epistles, and the Pauline Epistles, dated in the 10th C. Copied by a monk named Ephraem. To make this copy, Ephraem copied from a manuscript containing a large number of notes drawn from early church fathers, but none later than Basil (329-379 CE), suggesting a relatively early date for 1739's exemplar. Its text often agrees with p46 and B. At the Laura monastery of Mt. Athos, Greece.
