Description[edit]

The codex contains lessons from the Gospels of John, Matthew, Luke lectionary (Evangelistarium), with some lacunae at the end.[4] It is complete up to the lesson for July 20 (Eliah), Luke 4:22. The fly-leaf on paper was added with date 1619.[3]

The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, on 217 parchment leaves (25.2 cm by 20.4 cm), in two columns per page, 19-20 lines per page.[1][4]

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

History[edit]

Scrivener dated the manuscript to the 14th century,[3] Gregory to the 13th century.[4] Steenbuch dated it to the 11th century. It is presently assigned by the INTF to the 13th century.[1][2]

The manuscript once belonged to the Church of the Saint Mark.[4]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 229) and Gregory (number 236). Gregory saw it in 1883.[4]

The manuscript was examined by Steenbuch.[5]

The manuscript is not cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[6]

Currently the codex is housed at the Sion College (Arc L 40.2/G 4) in London.[1][2]
