Dated to the 4th century CE, Codex Sinaiticus, א or GA 01, is the earliest surviving complete codex of the New Testament. As you can see in Folio 228r, the Gospel of Mark ends in the second column at Mark 16:8, followed by a subscriptio ευαγγελιον κατα μαρκον. This makes it the earliest manuscript witness to the short ending of the Gospel of Mark. Mina Monier, SNSF MARK16 project, SIB Lausanne (CH); © CC-BY 4.0
