Lectionary 201, designated by siglum 201 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 13th century.[1][2] Scrivener labelled it by 209evl.[3]


The codex contains lessons from the Gospels of John, Matthew, Luke lectionary (Evangelistarium), with some lacunae.[3][4] The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, on 187 parchment leaves (26.5 cm by 19.5 cm), in two columns per page, 27 lines per page.[1][2] It is full of errors of itacism.[4]

According to Scrivener the manuscript is "carelessly and ill written".[3]

There are daily lessons from Easter to Pentecost.[1]


Scrivener and Gregory dated the manuscript to the 13th century.[3][4] It is presently assigned by the INTF to the 13th century.[1][2]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 209) and Gregory (number 201). Gregory saw it in 1883.[4]

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

Currently the codex is located in the Bodleian Library (E. D. Clarke 48) at Oxford.[1][2]
