Minuscule 167 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 305 (Soden), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it had been assigned to the 13th century.[1]



The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels on 264 parchment leaves (size 12.5 cm by 8.5 cm).[1] Written in one column per page, in 25 lines per page.[1] Initial letter in gold.

It contains lists of κεφαλαια, κεφαλαια, τιτλοι, subscriptions and pictures (added later).[2][3]

Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11) is marked by obelus.[3]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[4] It belongs to the textual family Kr.[5]


It was examined by Birch and Scholz (1794-1852).

It is currently housed at the Vatican Library (Barb. gr. 287), at Rome.[1]
