Do the OO churches accept the 85 Canons of the Holy Apostles?

Many apologies for the late reply....

Yes, we have our own version of the Canons of the Apostles : "the Coptic Canons of the Apostles"
they're 127 canons in 2 books, the second book includes 56 canons equivalent to the 85 canons in the EO church.

The 127 Canons of the Apostles:

Book 1:
Canons 1-20: Apostolic Church Order
Canons 21-47: Apostolic Tradition of Hippolytus
Canons 48-71: Excerpts from the Apostolic Constitutions attributed to St Clement of Rome.

Book 2:
56 Canons: Based on the Apostolic Constitutions

There is a separate document known as: The Thirty Canons of the Apostles.

Haven't seen these translated in english, nor do I have a copy of the Coptic canons, so I can't make a comparison/contrast with the canons linked to here.

Correct me please if I'm wrong but are not some of them part of the Ethiopian Canon of Holy Scripture?
