Lectionary 192, designated by siglum 192 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment leaves. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 13th century.[1][2] Scrivener labelled it by 264evl.[3]


The codex contains Lessons from the Gospels of John, Matthew, Luke lectionary (Evangelistarium), on 104 parchment leaves (27.5 cm by 21.5 cm), with lacunae at the beginning and end.[1][2][3][4] It is written in Greek minuscule letters, in two columns per page, 30-32 lines per page,[1][2][4] in very unusual black ink.[3]

There are daily lessons from Easter to Pentecost.[3]


Usually it is dated to the 13th century. Boone bought the manuscript for the British Museum in 1853.[3][4]

The manuscript was examined by Bloomfield. It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 264). Gregory saw it in 1882.[4]

The manuscript is not cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[5]

Currently the codex is located in the British Library (Add. 19460) at London.[1][2]
