Minuscule 762 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε477 (von Soden),[1][2] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament written on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 14th century. The manuscript has complex contents.[3][4] Scrivener labelled it as 852e.[5]


The codex contains the text of the four Gospels, on 332 parchment leaves (size 21 cm by 15 cm).[3] The text is written in one column per page, 21 lines per page.[3]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and their τιτλοι (titles) at the top of the pages.[6]

It contains Epistula ad Carpianum, Eusebian tables, Prolegomena, lectionary markings at the margin, subscription to the Gospel of Mark, and Synaxarion.[5][6]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Hermann von Soden classified it to the textual family Kx. Aland placed it in Category V.[7]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents textual family Kx in Luke 10. In Luke 1 and Luke 20 it has mixed Byzantine text.[8]


Scrivener dated the manuscript to the 14th century;[5] Gregory dated the manuscript to the 14th century.[6] The manuscript is currently dated by the INTF to the 14th century.[4]

It was written by Markos, a monk.[6]

In 1843 the manuscript was brought from the monastery of St. George in Locris to Athens,[6] along with 763.[9]

It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (852)[5] and Gregory (762). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1886.[6]

The manuscript is now housed at the National Library of Greece (155) in Athens.[3][4]
