This important 10th century manuscript has been identified as a representative of a family of manuscripts, defined by Kirsopp Lake as Family 1 (f1). Along with the 10th century GA 1582, we find the following note that introduces the long ending: “Εν τισι μεν των αντιγραφων εως ωδε πληρουται ο ευαγγελιστης εως ου και Ευσεβιος ο Παμφιλου εκανονισεν. Eν πολλοις δε και ταυτα φερεται.” “In some of the copies the Evangelist completes [the Gospel] to this point. It is to which point also Eusebius Pamphili made his canons. But in many [copies], these [verses] are also extant:” This is another example of how the scribe makes a decision regarding the ending. The variety of endings in the different copies did not lead him to choose one over the other, but to cautiously present both with a textual note that explains his textual choices.
