The University of Leuven (Belgium) preserves a collection of various fragments found in Khirbet Mird in 1952. Among them are fragments of three codices with text of the New Testament, two of which (P83, 0244) are here published with detailed manuscript descriptions and palaeographical and codicological notes. Complete transcriptions and photographs are also included. P83 exists in two small fragments of a Matthew codex, which can be dated to the 6th century. The text of one of them has been lost since about 1980 because of a water damage; it can only be read from earlier photographs. Of the majuscule 0244 there exists only one fragment – written on parchment – which belonged to a codex with text from Acts. It can be dated to the 5th century. Because of its unusual line division it seems to be originally a bilingual manuscript.
