Minuscule 267 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 1289 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it has been assigned to the 12th century.[2] It has marginalia.


The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 396 parchment leaves (20.5 cm by 15.5 cm), with lacunae (Matthew 1:1-8; Mark 1:1-7; Luke 1:1-8; Luke 24:50-John 1:12). The text is written in one column per page, in 20 lines per page.[2]

The text is divided according to the Ammonian Sections (Matthew 343, Mark 241 – the last section in 16:9, Luke 339, John 231), whose numbers are given at the margin. There are also references to the Eusebian Canons (in Matthew and Mark in the same line as Ammonian Sections – see codex 112).[3][n 1]

It contains Prolegomena, tables of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) before each Gospel, lectionary markings at the margin, incipits, αναγνωσεις (Matthew 116; Mark 71, Luke 114, John 67), subscriptions at the end of each Gospel, and numbers of στιχοι.[3]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[4]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it creates textual cluster along with the manuscripts 7, 1651, and 1654. The cluster stands close to the textual family Kx.[5]

It belongs to the textual family 1424.


The manuscript once belonged to Arsenikos, a monk. In 1605 (or 1606) it was presented to Nicodemus.[3] The manuscripts was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz (1794-1852).[6] It was examined and described by Paulin Martin.[7] C. R. Gregory saw the manuscript in 1885.[3]

The manuscript is currently housed at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Gr. 69) at Paris.[2]
