The codex contains lessons from the Gospels of John, Matthew, Luke lectionary (Evangelistarium), on 231 parchment leaves (37 cm by 27 cm), with some lacunae in beginning. It is written in two columns per page, in 17 and more lines per page, in Greek uncial letters.[1] Full of itacismus, it contains musical notes.[2]

According to Scrivener it is very valuable copy.[3]

The manuscript is not cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament (UBS3).[4]
