Abstract :
MS 193 in the Schøyen Collection, also known as the Crosby-Schøyen Codex, is a unique Coptic papyrus codex that has previously been dated by scholars from the second to the sixth centuries CE. This article presents the results of recent radiocarbon analysis of a fragment of one of the leaves of the codex, while discussing the radiocarbon dating method itself and the remaining uncertainties relating to the interpretation of the results of such analysis.
