Minuscule 675 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 446 (von Soden),[1][2] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 13th century. The manuscript has survived in a fragmentary condition.[3][4] Scrivener labelled it by 621e.[5]


The codex contains the text of the Gospel of Matthew 26:20-39, on 2 parchment leaves (size 20.5 cm by 13.7 cm),[3] The text is written in one column per page, 26 lines per page.[3][6]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numerals are given at the margin, and their τιτλοι (titles) at the top. There is also a division according to the Ammonian Sections, but no a references to the Eusebian Canons.[5]

It contains a lectionary markings at the margin and Prolegomena to the Gospel of Mark.[5]


Kurt Aland did not place the Greek text of the codex in any Category.[7]


Scrivener and Gregory dated it to the 13th or 14th century.[6] Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 13th century.[4]

The manuscript belonged to Tischendorf (along with Minuscule 674). It was bought after his death, in 1876.[6] It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener and Gregory. C. R. Gregory saw it in 1883.[6] It was examined by Hort and Brandshaw.[5]

Actually the manuscript is housed at the Cambridge University Library (Add. Mss. 1879.24) in Cambridge.[3][4]
