Description[edit]

The codex contains the text of the four Gospels, Acts of the Apostles and Pauline epistles, on 324 paper leaves (size 21 cm by 14.5 cm).[3] Folios 324-327 were supplied by a later hand.[1] The text is written in one column per page, 26-29 lines per page.[3][4]

It contains Prolegomena, lists of the κεφαλαια (chapters) before each sacred book (with a Harmony), lectionary markings at the margin, incipits, αναγνωσεις (lessons), subscriptions at the end each book, numbers of στιχοι, and Euthalian Apparatus.[5] Subscriptions were added by a later hand.[1]

The order of books is unusual: Book of Acts, Catholic epistles, Pauline epistles, and Gospels. A similar order appears in 393, 592.[5]
