Minuscule 600 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), Zε599 (von Soden),[1] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on paper. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 14th century.[2] The manuscript has complex contents. It was labelled by Scrivener as 463.[3]


The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 430 paper leaves (size 32.8 cm by 24.5 cm). The text is written in one column per page, 31 lines per page.[2] It contains lists of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) (only to John), numerals of the κεφαλαια (chapters) at the margin, and the τιτλοι (titles of chapters) at the top of the pages.[4]

It has a commentary of Euthymius Zigabenus.[4]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[5] It was not examined by using the Claremont Profile Method.[6]


The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener. Gregory saw the manuscript in 1886.[4]

The manuscript currently is housed at the Biblioteca Marciana (Gr. II,7 (979)), at Venice.[2]
