The Original New Testament

Five manuscripts of Dioscurides survive on Mount Athos, of which Lavra Cod. Ω 75 (12th c.) is not only the most important one of this author's work but also the most important of all the manuscripts preserved on Athos today. Amongst the other manuscripts of Dioscurides the present one, which is a copy of Codex Ω 75 at the Lavra, is outstanding.
