Minuscule 724 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε530 (von Soden),[1][2] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament written on parchment and partially on paper. It is dated by a Colophon to 1520 CE. The manuscript has complex contents.[3][4] Scrivener labelled it as 829e.[5]


The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 203 parchment and paper leaves (size 14.2 cm by 10 cm).[3][6]

The text is written in single columns per page, 22 lines per page.[3]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), Greek and Latin, but there are no τιτλοι (titles) at the top or bottom.[6]

It contains lists of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) with a harmony before each Gospel, subscriptions at the end, and Pseudo-Dorotheus Lives of the Evangelists.[6]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[7]

It was not examined by using Claremont Profile Method.[8]


Gregory dated the manuscript to the 15th century.[6] The manuscript is currently dated by the INTF to the year 1520.[4]

It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (829) and Gregory (724). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1887.[6]

The manuscript is now housed at the Austrian National Library (Suppl. gr. 175) in Vienna.[3][4]
