Minuscule 778 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε465 (von Soden),[1][2] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament written on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 12th century. The manuscript has complex contents.[3][4]

Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the four Gospels, on 195 parchment leaves (size 23.5 cm by 17.5 cm).[3] The text is written in one column per page, 25 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. There is also another division according to the smaller Ammonian Sections (in Mark 238, 16:20), with references to the Eusebian Canons.[5]

It contains the Epistula ad Carpianum, Eusebian tables, Prolegomena (later hand), lists of the κεφαλαια (tables of contents) before each Gospel, lectionary markings at the left margin, incipits, subscriptions at the end of each Gospel, numbers of στιχοι, and pictures (in Matthew from another manuscript).[5]

Text[edit]

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Hermann von Soden classified it to the textual family Kx.[6] Aland placed it in Category V.[7]

According to the Claremont Profile Method it represent the textual family Kx in Luke 1 and Luke 20. In Luke 10 no profile was made.[6]

History[edit]

C. R. Gregory dated the manuscript to the 12th century.[5] The manuscript is currently dated by the INTF to the 12th century.[4]

The manuscript was noticed in catalogue from 1876.[8]

It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Gregory (778). Gregory saw the manuscript in 1886.[5]

The manuscript is now housed at the National Library of Greece (80) in Athens.[3][4]
