Lectionary 267, designated by siglum 267 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) is a Greek manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. It is dated by a colophon to the year 1046.[1][2] Scrivener labelled it as 173e,[3] Gregory by 267e.[4] The manuscript is lacunose.[1]


The codex contains lessons from the Gospel of John, Matthew, and Luke (Evangelistarium), with two lacunae at the beginning and end.[4]

The text is written in Greek large minuscule letters, on 300 parchment leaves (33 cm by 26 cm), in two columns per page, 24 lines per page.[1] Scrivener described it as "a grand cursive folio, sumptuously adorned".[3] According to Gregory it is a beautiful manuscript.[4]

The manuscript contains weekday Gospel lessons.[1]

It contains text of John 8:3-11.[4]


The manuscript is dated by a colophon to the year 1046.[1][2] It was written for the Church in Constantinople.[4]

It was examined and described by Mingarelli and Carlo Castellani.[4]
