Lectionary 276, designated by siglum 276 (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 as 182e,[3]

The manuscript has complex contents.[1]


The codex contains lessons from the Gospel of John, Matthew, and Luke (Evangelistarium).[4]

The text is written in Greek minuscule letters, on 168 parchment leaves (27.7 cm by 21.3 cm), in two columns per page, 24 lines per page.[1][4] The manuscript contains weekday Gospel lessons.[1]

According to Scrivener it was "once a fine codex, now tied up in a parcel by itself".[3] It is destroyed by moisture.[4]


Dean Burgon dated the manuscript to the 11th century, Scrivener to the 12th century,[3] and Gregory to the 13th century.[4] It has been assigned by the Institute for New Testament Textual Research to the 13th century.[1][2]

The manuscript belonged to Hieronymus Venus in 1722. It has been held in the church of Saint Mark.[4]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (number 182e) and Gregory (number 276e). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1886.[4]

The manuscript is sporadically cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[5]

The codex is housed at the Biblioteca Marciana (Gr. I,54 (1146)) in Venice.[1][2]
