Minuscule 464 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), α 165 (in the Soden numbering),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 11th century.[2] Formerly it was labelled by 106a and 122p.[3]


The codex contains the text of the Acts of the Apostles, Catholic epistles, and Pauline epistles on 229 parchment leaves (22.5 cm by 16.8 cm).[2] It contains also liturgical books with hagiographies: Synaxarion, Menologion.[4]

It is carefully written in one column per page, 33 lines per page.[2]

It contains prolegomena, tables of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) before each sacred book, lectionary markings at the margin (for liturgical reading), and the Psalms annexed.[3][4]

The order of books is usual for the Greek manuscripts: Acts, Catholic epistles, and Pauline epistles.[4]
