Lectionary 205, designated by siglum 205 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 10th century.[1][2] Scrivener labelled it by 201evl.[3] The manuscript has complex context.


The codex contains lessons from the Gospels lectionary (Evangelistarium), on 5 parchment leaves (29.5 cm by 19 cm).[3][4] The text is written in Greek Uncial letters, in two columns per page, 20 lines per page,[1][2] 6-12 letters. It contains musical notes.[4] It was used for binding, a palimpsest.[3] The upper text contains lessons from the Old Testament lectionary.[1]


Scrivener and Gregory dated it to the 11th century.[3][4] It is presently assigned by the INTF to the 10th century.[1][2]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 201) and Gregory (number 204). 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 (Barocci 197) at Oxford.[1][2]
