The codex contains the text of the Acts of the Apostles and Catholic epistles on 254 parchment leaves (32 cm by 23.5 cm). The text is written in one column per page.[2] The biblical text is surrounded by a catena.[3]

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

It contains Prolegomena, tables of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) before each book, and subscriptions at the end of each sacred book, with numbers of stichoi.[3]

In Acts 8:39 instead of πνεῦμα κυρίου (spirit of the Lord) it has unusual textual variant πνεῦμα ἅγιον ἐπέπεσεν ἐπὶ τὸν εὐνοῦχον, ἄγγελος δέ κυρίου ἥρπασεν τὸν Φίλιππον (the Holy Spirit fell on the eunuch, and an angel of the Lord caught up Philip) supported by Codex Alexandrinus and several minuscule manuscripts: 94, 103, 322, 323, 385, 453, 467, 945, 1739, 1765, 1891, 2298, 36a, itp, vg, syrh.[5]

In Acts 18:17 it reads παντες οι Ιουδαιοι for παντες; the reading is supported by minuscule 431.[6]

In Acts 12:18 it reads μεγας for ουκ ολιγος, the reading is supported by 94, 431, 1175, 2818, copsa, arm.[7]


The manuscript was examined by Montfaucon, Wettstein, and Cramer.[3] It was examined and described by Paulin Martin.[8] C. R. Gregory saw the manuscript in 1885.[3]
