Abstract :
In our research for the critical edition of the Sahidic variants of the Gospel of Mark, the manuscript sa 123 stands out as a very special example: it is likely to be a fragmentary witness of philological work in the Fayyum well after the Arabic conquest. The manuscript features extensive corrections performed by a second hand and based on a different type of text than the first copy. In this article we present the edition of one of its pages with the purpose of exploring the process and philological activity attested by it.
