The codex contains almost complete text of the four Gospels, on 372 parchment leaves (size 37.5 cm by 29.5 cm).[2] The text is written in one column per page, in various number of lines per page.[3][4] It has only one lacunae in Matthew 1:1-2:18, it was supplied by a later hand.[3]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and their τιτλοι (titles of chapters) at the top of the pages.[3]

It contains pictures. The biblical text is surrounded by a (Catenae). In the Gospel of Mark, the commentary is by Victorinus of Pettau.[3] There are rich blue and gold illuminations and pictures of Saint Mark and Luke.[4]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[5]

It was examined by Birch and Burgon. C. R. Gregory saw it in 1886.[3]
