The Greek text of the codex Kurt Aland did not place in any Category.[6]

It was not examined according to the Claremont Profile Method.[7]

History[edit]

According to F. H. A. Scrivener and C. R. Gregory it was written in the 15th century. Henry Stevenson dated it to the 14th century. Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 15th century.[3]

It once belonged to Jerome Vignier († 1661) along with another manuscript formerly listed as minuscule 104e.[4][8] 104e was delisted by Gregory in 1908.[9]

The manuscript was described by Henry Stevenson.[4][10] Gregory saw it in 1886.[4]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (697e),[5] Gregory (885e).[4]

Currently the manuscript is housed at the Vatican Library (Reg. gr. 5), in Rome.[2][3]
