It's interesting that the 5000-plus Antiochian texts are better than 95 percent in agreement and can be found on 3 continents: Africa, Asia, and Europe while the Alexandrian text is localized largely around the region of Alexandria and according I think to John Burgon in the 1880s, these 45 manuscripts can be traced to one author.
