Minuscule 710 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε348 (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 is lacunose.[3][4] Scrivener labelled it as 81e.[5]


The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 183 parchment leaves (size 18 cm by 12.5 cm),[3][6] with some lacunae.[3]


Matthew 19:15-21:19; 21:31-41; 22:7-28:20; Mark 1:9-3:18; 3:35-15:15; 15:32-16:14; Luke 1:8-2:19; 3:17-4:40; 5:8-22:5; 22:36-23:10; John 8:4-21:18.[6]

The text is written in one column per page, 23-24 lines per page.[3]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given the left margin, and their τιτλοι at the top; there is also a division according to the Ammonian Sections, without a references to the Eusebian Canons.[5][6]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Hermann von Soden classified it to the textual family Kx.[7] Kurt Aland did not place it in any Category.[8]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents mixed Byzantine text in Luke 1, Kx in Luke 10, and textual group Λ in Luke 20.[7]


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

It was bought in 1883 from William Ward, who brought the manuscript from Ephesus.[6]

It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (81) and Gregory (710). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1883.[6]

At present the manuscript is housed at the Bodleian Library (Auct. T. inf. 1. 5) in Oxford.[3][4]
