Lectionary 64, designated by siglum 64 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment leaves. It is a lectionary (Evangelistarion). Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 9th-century.[1]


The codex contains lessons from the Gospel of John, Gospel of Matthew, and Gospel of Luke with lacunae at the beginning and end.[2] It is written in Greek uncial letters, on 210 parchment leaves (27.8 cm by 20.2 cm). The writing stands in two columns per page, in 22 lines per page.[1] Many leaves are torn.[3]


The manuscript came from Constantinople. It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz, who examined many of its passages.[3] It was examined by Paulin Martin[4] and Henri Omont.[5]

The manuscript is sporadically cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[6]

Currently the codex is located in the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Gr. 281), in Paris.[1]
