Lectionary 451, designated by sigla ℓ 451 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, written on 242 parchment leaves (30.7 cm by 23.2 cm). Palaeografically it had been assigned to the 11th century.
The manuscript was written by Clement the monk who signed and dated the colophon on f. 242v (in Greek):
- "Written in the month of July 20, indiction 5, year 6560 [i.e., A. D. 1052]; presented by Clement the worthless monk to the monastery of the most holy Mother of God of the Cave."
Formerly the codex was held in Athens, known for scholars since 1886. It was purchased by K. W. Clark and currently is housed at the Kenneth Willis Clark Collection of the Duke University (Gk MS 85) at Durham.
