Dated to the 7th century, GA 099 is a fragment of a Greek text of the Gospels that comes from Egypt. The only part that survives contains Mark’s last chapter, from verse 6 onward. It contains both shorter and longer endings, separated by scribal notes attesting to the differences in the exemplars the scribe consulted. Interestingly, the Greek text is written in Coptic script, yet the notes that separate the different endings was written in Greek minuscule script. GA 099 is constituted by one folio, in which the papyrological verso must be read first (f. 162v or page 161), and then the other side (f. 162r or page 162). This folio is a last one of a manuscript classified as the Gospel according to Luke at the National Library of France (see For page 162 (or f.162r), we have followed the orientation proposed by the INTF, rather than this one proposed by the BNF.
