This is a question that can best be answered by looking closely at a copy of the NA26 or NA27. If you look at a printed edition of the NA26 or NA27, the apparatus tells you exactly which manuscripts support each variant reading. There is also a table that tells you the names of each of these manuscripts.<br>
