Minuscule 313 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), Nλ46 (Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on paper. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 14th century.[2]


The codex contains the text of the Gospel of Luke 1:1-12:16 on 460 paper leaves (30 cm by 21 cm). The text is written in one column per page, in 28-32 lines per page.[2] The biblical text is surrounded by a catena.[3]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[4] It was not examined by the Claremont Profile Method.[5]


The manuscript once belonged to Cardinal Mazarin (like codex 14, 311, 324).[3] It 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. 208) at Paris.[2]
