Minuscule 219 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 385 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it has been assigned to the 13th century.[2] It has marginalia.

Description[edit]

The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels, on 232 parchment leaves (size 15 cm by 12 cm).[2] It is written in one column per page, 21 lines per page.[3]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and the τιτλοι (titles of chapters) at the top of the pages. There is also a division according to the Ammonian Sections (in Mark 233, 16:8), with references to the Eusebian Canons (written below Ammonian Section numbers).[3]

It contains the lists of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) before each Gospel, and subscriptions at the end of each Gospel.[3][4]
