Codex Washingtonianus is a New Testament manuscript displayed at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington. It is a Greek uncial text that includes all four Gospels, as well as fragments of the epistles. It was produced around AD 400. It was purchased in Egypt by Charles Lang Freer in 1906, and it is owned by the Freer Gallery of Art. It consists of 210 leaves. It is believed to have been produced at a monastery near the pyramids. This makes it the only early Gospel manuscript whose place of origin is known. A unique feature of this manuscript is the "Freer Logion," an extended insert that follows Mark 16:14. The text type is well regarded, but the poor condition of the document limits its usefulness.
