Alexandrian text-type:  One of several text-types thought to be traceable to Alexandria, Egypt, and regarded very highly by most scholars.

Some have differentiated a text-type called the “neutral text,” which is closely related to the Alexandrian and most likely a more primitive form of it (i.e., proto-Alexandrian).

Also referred to as the Egyptian, Hesychian or Beta text-type.
