The codex contains lessons from the Gospels of John, Matthew, Luke lectionary (Evangelistarium). The text is written in Greek uncial letters, on 228 parchment leaves (24.7 cm by 15.9 cm), in 1 column per page, 21 lines per page.[1][2] Parchment is thick. It contains musical notes.[3] It contains in the Menology (December 16) the name Queen Theophano, who died in A.D. 892.[4]


The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz.[5] It was examined by Scholz and Burgon.[3] Montfaucon and Burgon dated it to the 8th-century, Scrivener and Gregory to 10th-century (because of Menology), Aland to the 9th-century. Gregory saw the manuscript in 1886.[3]
