The codex contains lessons from the Gospels lectionary (Evangelistarium), on 145 parchment leaves (25.6 cm by 17.2 cm), with some lacunae at the end. It is written in Greek uncial letters, in two columns per page, 23 lines per page,[1] in large letters. It is a palimpsest.[1] The upper text was added in the 12th century, it is the Lectionary 136.[2]


The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz.[3] It was examined by Scholz, Tischendorf, Simcox, and Gregory.[2] Constantin von Tischendorf gave its readings from Matthew 24:34-25:16; John 19:11-25.[4]

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

Currently the codex is located in the Vatican Library (Barberini gr. 472, fol. 1-118.139-165) in Rome.[1]
