Codex Tischendorfianus V or Lectionary 293 (Gregory-Aland), designated by siglum 293 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 8th century.[1][2] Scrivener labelled it as 190e.[3]


The codex contains lessons from the Gospel of John, Matthew, and Luke (Evangelistarium), on 89 parchment leaves (27.5 cm by 21.5 cm),[4] with some lacunae.[1] It is a palimpsest, the upper and younger text contains lessons from the Book of Psalms. It is dated to the 12th century.[5]

The text is written in Greek uncial letters, in two columns per page, 20 lines per page. The manuscript contains weekday Gospel lessons.[1] It contains music notes.[4][3]


Scrivener and Gregory dated it to the 8th or 9th century.[3][4] It has been assigned by the Institute for New Testament Textual Research to the 8th century.[1][2]

The manuscript was examined by Constantin von Tischendorf in 1843, who gave some extracts from the codex in his Anecdota.[6]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 190e) and Gregory (number 293e). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1884.[4]

The manuscript is not cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[7]
