Minuscule 1813, designated by number 1813 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 3047 (Soden), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, written on 235 parchment leaves (22.5 by 14.9 cm). Paleografically it had been assigned to the 11th century (or 12th).[1]


It contains a complete text of the four Gospels. It is written in a roundish cursive hand. The writing is in one column per page, in 26-27 lines per page.[1] It contains Synaxarion and Menologion.


Kurt Aland did not place the Greek text of the codex in any Category.[2] According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents textual family Kr in Luke 1 and Luke 20. In Luke 10 no profile was made. It creates a pair with 966.[3]


The name of scribe was Hierotheos.[4] Formerly it was kept in the monastery in Soumela (Ms. 82), in Trebizond. Purchased on 1961 for $ 2 380.

Currently the codex is located in the Kenneth Willis Clark Collection of the Duke University (Gk MS 25) at Durham.[1]
