Minuscule 1780 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering) δ 412 (von Soden), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, written on 198 parchment leaves (30.6 cm by 22.7 cm). Paleografically it had been assigned to the 13th century (or about 1200).[1]



The codex contains entire of the New Testament with unusual order of the General epistles. Written in one column per page, in 41-52 lines per page. The order of the books: Gospels, Acts, James, Pauline epistles, General epistles (except for James), the Apocalypse. It contains prolegomena to the Catholic epistle, and a commentary to the Apocalypse without the text.[2]
