The codex contains lessons from the Gospels of John, Matthew, Luke lectionary (Evangelistarium), on 255 parchment leaves (30.8 cm by 23 cm).[3][4] The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, in two columns per page, 14 lines per page,[1][2] about 7 letters in line, in very large, bold, and peculiar letters. It contains musical notes.[3][4]

There are daily lessons from Easter to Pentecost.[1]


Scrivener and Gregory dated it to the 11th century.[3][4] It is presently assigned by the INTF to the 11th century.[1][2]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 213) and Gregory (number 206). Gregory saw it in 1883.[4]

Currently the codex is located in the Bodleian Library (Wake 13) at Oxford.[1][2]
