        If memory serves, the symbol "gig" stands for Codex Gigas, the famously large Latin manuscript that dates to the twelfth century (occasionally known as the "Devil's Bible" because of a demonic illustration that occupies an entire page of the manuscript). It's listed in the indices of Nestle-Aland under "Codices Latini." However, I believe that it is only cited as a witness in the Acts of the Apostles and the Book of Revelation, because it contains an Old Latin text in those books; elsewhere it follows the Vulgate.
