Notes: 

Manuscript Acts of the Apostles written in Egypt.
According to Petersen, "the text ... is substantially that of the standard Sahidic version found in the Beatty codex and also ... [M.664B.8] ... The present new text differs from the published texts only in a few individual spellings ... The recension of the text is the 'Alexandrian' one, which eventually supplanted a variety of different readings which were current in Egypt before the time of Origen."--Cf. PML files.
