It contains numbers of the κεφαλαια (chapters) at the margin, the τιτλοι (titles) at the top of the pages, lectionary markings at the margin for liturgical use; liturgical books with hagiographies: Synaxarion and Menologion; subscriptions at the end of each book, numbers of στιχοι, and scholia.[3]

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[5] According to Gregory it has unusual readings.[4]

History[edit]

The manuscript was slightly examined and described by Scholz, Paulin Martin,[6] and C. R. Gregory (1885). According to Scholz, it was formerly indexed in the National Library as Gr. 2247. Isaac Newton cites it by that call number in his discussion of the Johannine Comma. It was examined by J.G. Reiche.[7]

It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz.[8] Formerly it was labeled by 114a and 134p. In 1908 Gregory gave the number 465 to it.[1]

It is currently housed at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Gr. 57) in Paris.[2]
