Lectionary 62, designated by siglum 62 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment leaves. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 12th-century.[1]


The codex contains lessons from the Acts of the Apostles and Epistles. It is a lectionary (Apostolos) with lacunae at the end.[2] It is written in Greek minuscule letters, on 276 parchment leaves (25.5 cm by 18.5 cm), in one column per page, in 24 (and more) lines per page.[1]


The manuscript was brought from Constantinople. It was examined by Matthaei. I was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz.[2]

The manuscript is sporadically cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[3]

Currently the codex is located in the State Historical Museum, (V. 23, S. 304) in Moscow.[1]
