Lectionary 6, designated by siglum 6 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering). It is a Greek-Arabic diglot manuscript of the New Testament, on paper leaves, dated by a colophon to the year 1265.[1]


The codex contains Lessons from the Acts, Epistles lectionary (Apostolos), Psalms, but a few Lessons from the Gospels (Evangelistarium).[2] It is written in Greek uncial letters, on 275 paper leaves (19 cm by 13.5 cm), 2 columns per page, 18 lines per page.[1]

In Matthew 23:35 phrase υιου βαραχιου (son of Barachi'ah) is omitted; this omission is supported only by Codex Sinaiticus, codex 59 (by the first hand), two other Evangelistaria ( 13, and 185), and citations in Eusebius.[3]


It was examined by Wettstein and Dermount.[4] It was added to the list of the New Testament manuscripts by Wettstein.[5]

The manuscript is sporadically cited in the critical editions of the Greek New Testament of UBS (UBS3).[6]

The codex now is located in the Leiden University Library (Or. 243) at Leiden.[1][7]
