The manuscript was brought to America in 1844 from Canea in Crete, by George Benton (along with Minuscule 670, and Minuscule 669). It was examined by J. Rendel Harris.[3]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Caspar René Gregory (number 302e).

The codex now is located in the Kenneth Willis Clark Collection of the Duke University (Gk MS 83) at Durham.[1]
