The codex contains Lessons from the Acts and Epistles from Easter to Pentecost lectionary (Apostolarion) with lacunae at the beginning and end.[2] It is written in Greek minuscule letters, on 118 parchment leaves (21.3 cm by 16.7 cm), with one column and 21-22 lines per page.[1] It was supplied by some cotton paper at the end.[3]


The manuscript was examined by Paul Martin and Gregory. Gregory assigned it by 30a.[2]

The manuscript is not cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[4]

Currently the codex is located in the National Library of France (Gr. 373).[1]
