Text: E. Nestle – K. Aland, Novum Testamentum Graece, p. 84*-89*.
English Translation: has the letter to Carpianum and the Canons themselves
Notes: The letter to Carpianus explains why Eusebius devised his “Canons.” The letter often precedes the actual canons in manuscripts. Both parts are preserved in Greek, Latin, Coptic, Syriac, and Armenian.
