Minuscule 562 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 604 (in the Soden numbering),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on paper. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 16th century.[2] Scrivener labelled it by number 522.[3]


The codex contains the text of the Gospel of John on the first 58 leaves (size 14.2 cm by 10.5 cm). The leaves 59-78 contain Mithridates.[4] The manuscript was written by many hands.[5] The writing is in one column per page, 20 lines per page.[2] It contains Latin κεφαλαια (chapters) at the left margin.[3][5]


It does not contain the text of Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11). Aland did not place the Greek text of the codex in any Category.[6]


The manuscript was announced by Gustav Haenel.[3] It was added to the list of the New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (522). Gregory saw it in 1883.[5]

Currently the manuscript is housed at the Glasgow University Library (Ms. Hunter 170) in Glasgow.[2]
