Minuscule 2793 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on 1 parchment leaf (13.9 cm by 10.3 cm). Dated paleographically to the 13th century (or 14th century). Only one leaf has survived.[1]


The codex contains only a fragment text of the Gospel of Matthew 22:7-22. The text is written in one column per page, in 20 lines per page.[1] It has breathings and accents. It is written by small well-formed Greek hand. The margins are wide.[2]

Kurt Aland did not place it in any Category.[3]

This leaf is one of very few authentic pieces which were bought by Thomas Phillipps from Constantine Simonides (in 1853/1854).

The codex is now housed at Bible Museum Münster (Ms. 11).[1]
