Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the four Gospels, on 283 parchment leaves (size 21 cm by 15 cm).[3] The text is written in one column per page, 21-23 lines per page.[3]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and their τιτλοι (titles of chapters) at the top of the pages. There is also another division according to the smaller Ammonian Sections (in Mark 232 Sections, last in 16:8), without references to the Eusebian Canons.[6]

It contains Eusebian tables at the beginning, subscriptions at the end of each Gospel, and pictures.[5][6] The manuscript is ornamented.[1]
