Minuscule 112 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 146 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment leaves. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 11th century.[2] The manuscript has complex contents ad full marginalia.


The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 167 parchment leaves (14.5 cm by 11.3 cm). The text is written in one column per page, 33 lines per page.[2] The large initial letters in gold.[3]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and their τιτλοι at the top of the pages. There is also another division according to the smaller Ammonian Sections, with references to the Eusebian Canons (in Matthew 1-Mark 2 in the same line).[n 1][3]

It contains the Epistle to Carpian, the Eusebian tables, tables of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) are placed before each Gospel, lectionary markings at the margin (for liturgical use), synaxaria, Menologion, subscriptions at the end of each Gospel, and portraits of the Evangelists. According to Scrivener it is "a very beautiful copy".[4]
