Minuscule 175 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), δ 95 (Soden), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it had been assigned to the 12th century.[1]



The codex contains almost complete text of the New Testament on 247 parchment leaves (size 20.2 cm by 14.5 cm),[1] with only one lacunae (Matt. 1:1-4:17).[2]

Written in one column per page, in 35-37 lines per page (size of text 16.9 by 10.5 cm),[1] in brown ink.[2]

The Book of Revelation placed between Acts of the Apostles and Catholic epistles.[3] Pauline epistles follow Catholic epistles.[2] It contains scholia to the Acts, some marginal corrections prima manu (e.g. Luke 24:13). The Pauline epistles have Euthalius subscriptions.[3]


According to Hermann von Soden in the Acts and epistles the text of the manuscript is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland did not place it to any Category.


This codex, together with 173, 174, 176, and 177, was brought from the Library of the Basilian monks.

It was examined by Bianchini, Birch, Scholz, and Gregory.[2]

It is currently housed at the Vatican Library (Vat. gr. 2080), at Rome.[1]
