Minuscule 177 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), α 106 (Soden), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it had been assigned to the 11th century.[1] Formerly it was labelled by 179a, 128p, and 82r.



The codex contains the text of the Acts of the Apostles, Pauline epistles, and Book of Revelation on 225 parchment leaves (size 26.5 cm by 21 cm).[1] Written in one column per page, in 25 lines per page.[1] It contains prolegomena, fragments of Eusebian tables, κεφαλαια, τιτλοι, στιχοι, and marginal notes to the Pauline epistles.[2] It has Pseudo-Dorotheus threatise.[3]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[4] The text is very close to the Textus Receptus.[3]


The manuscript once belonged to Zomozerab, the Bohemian. The portion of the manuscript which contains the text of the Apocalypse was collated by F. Delitzsch.[3]

It is currently housed at the Bavarian State Library (Gr. 211), at Munich.[1]
