Lectionary 289, designated by siglum 289 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 14th century.[1][2] Scrivener labelled it as 168e.[3]

Some leaves of the manuscript were lost.


The codex contains lessons from the Matthew and Luke (Evangelistarium), on 156 parchment leaves (32.6 cm by 25.5 cm), with some lacunae.[4] Lessons from the Gospel of John and major part of Menology were lost.[4]

The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, in two columns per page, 27-28 lines per page.[1][4] The manuscript contains weekday Gospel lessons.[1]


Scrivener and Gregory dated the manuscript to the 14th century.[3][4] It is presently assigned by the INTF to the 14th century.[1][2]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 168e) and Gregory (number 289e). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1886.[4]

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

Currently the codex is housed at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana (C. 160 inf.) in Milan.[1][2]
