Minuscule 178 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 210 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 12th century.[2] It has marginalia.

Description[edit]

The codex contains an almost complete text of the four Gospels on 272 thick parchment leaves (size 37.9 cm by 29.7 cm),[2] with only one small lacuna (John 21:17-25).[3][4] The leaves are arranged in quarto.[3] The text is written in two columns per page, in 23 lines per page,[2] in dark-brown ink, capital letters in gold.[4]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and their τιτλοι (titles of chapters) with a harmony at the top of the pages. There is also a division according to the Ammonian Sections (in Mark 234 sections - the last in 16:9), but without references to the Eusebian Canons.[4]

It contains the Eusebian Canon tables at the beginning, lists of the κεφαλαια (lists of contents) before each of the Gospels.[3][4]

The headings of the Gospels as in minuscule 69 – εκ του κατα Μαρκον.[4][n 1]

On the first leaf it has the same subscription as codex 87.[3]

Text[edit]

Kurt Aland did not place the Greek text of the codex in any Category.[5]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents the textual family Πa in Luke 1 and Luke 10. In Luke 20 it represents Kx.[6]

The text of the Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11) is marked by an obelus.

History[edit]
