This article draws attention to a previously unnoticed witness to the so-called ‘Western’ order of the gospels. The relevant manuscript, a sixth-century parchment codex, now survives as four fragments catalogued by the INTF as 073 and 084. Although the fragments only contain portions of the Gospel of Matthew, they also preserve a marginal concordance table based on the Eusebian Canon Tables, which implies the codex once contained all four gospels in the sequence Matthew–John–Luke–Mark.
