The codex contains Lessons from the Acts and Epistles lectionary (Apostolarion), on 32 parchment leaves (10.2 cm by 7.2 cm), with numerous lacunae. The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, in one column per page, 10 lines per page.[1] It is a palimpsest, the lower text is in Arabic.[1]


The manuscript was examined by Constantin von Tischendorf (1 leaf) and Gregory.[2]

The manuscript is sporadically cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[3]

Currently the codex is located in the National Library of Russia (Gr. 37, fol. 2.3; Gr. 37a; Gr. 45a; Gr. 110; Gr. 112) at Saint Petersburg.[1]
