Lectionary 102, designated by siglum 102 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) – formerly 102a – is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on paper leaves. It is dated by a colophon to the year 1370.[1]


The codex contains Lessons from the Gospels of John, Matthew, Luke lectionary (Evangelistarium) with a commentary. The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, on 116 paper leaves (27.9 cm by 21.9 cm), in 1 column per page, 35 lines per page.[2] According to Burgon it contains commentarii incerti auctoris in omnia Evangelia quae per annum in Ecclesia Graeca leguntur.[3]

The same manuscript contains four parchment leaves, two at beginning and two at end, written in 24 lines per page, from the 13th century.[2] They are classified now as Lectionary 2307, and they were designated by siglum 2307 (formerly as 102b).[1]


The manuscript was written by Stephanus, a priest. It was bought in 1606 in Taranto.[3] It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz,[4] who examined some parts of it.[2]

The manuscript is not cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[5]

Currently the codex is located in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana (S. 62 sup.) in Milan.[1]
