22, which is a 12th c. minuscule of the Gospels. An 11th c. lectionary
(858) has it in one out of two occurences of the verse. Harkel's Syriac
version (AD 616) includes it in a marginal note, which indicates that he
knew of some Greek support for the reading. Three Latin commentaries
include the reading (in the commentary portion, but not in the lemma:
Origen, Jerome, and Augustine. Origen is 3rd c., but the fact that it's
in the Latin translation of his work makes the textual history more
interesting. Both Jerome and Augustine were 5th c. It might be worth
mentioning that there is one minuscule (21), as well as an 8th c. Old
Latin manuscript, that reads as Isaiah instead.
