GC: Coherent late Byzantine attestation to f, a clearly secondary variant according to TP.
TP: In ch. 11 Peter reports about his vision of a cloth containing all kinds of edible animals coming down from heaven. In v. 8 he mentions his refusal of eating anything unclean or impure referring to the narration of the event in ch. 10. There (10:14/20-26) he said, ουδεποτε εφαγον παν κοινον και ακαθαρτον, without appreciable variation. Here variant a with a wording differing from that in ch. 10 has support from nearly all manuscripts featuring A as there closest potential ancestor. Variants f-j reinforce the statement by bringing it into parallel with 10:14 which is clear TP of being secondary. Variant f is the majority reading with a very coherent attestation with 5 at its top (with connectivity 6).
