The codex contains Lessons from the Gospels of John, Matthew, Luke lectionary (Evangelistarium) with some lacunae. It is written in Greek minuscule letters, on 357 parchment leaves (32.5 cm by 24.5 cm), 1 column per page, 23 lines per page. Some leaves in disorder.[2]


The manuscript once belonged to Colbert. It was examined by Scholz.[2] It was examined and described by Paulin Martin.[3] C. R. Gregory saw it in 1885.[2]
