Code page 851 (CCSID 851) (CP 851, IBM 851, OEM 851) is a code page used under DOS to write Greek language[2] although it lacks the letters Ϊ and Ϋ. It covers the German language as well. It also covers some accented letters of the French language, but it lacks most of the accented capital letters required for French. It is also called MS-DOS Greek 1.[3]

It has been superseded by Code page 869.
