Minuscule 211 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 234 (Soden), is a Greek-Arabic diglot minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it had been assigned to the 12th century.[1]



The codex contains the text of the four Gospels, on 280 parchment leaves (size 29.5 cm by 23 cm), with two lacunae (Luke 1:1-2:32; John 1:1-4:2).[1] Written in two columns per page, 26 lines per page.[2] It contains tables of κεφαλαια to Luke, Ammonian Sections (Mark 236 - 16:12), Eusebian Canons (irregularly inserted), synaxaria, Menologion, subscriptions, ρηματα, and στιχοι.[2][3]


The Greek text of the codex is a mixture of the text-types. Aland did not place it in any Category.


It was examined by Birch, Burgon, and Lake.[2]

It is currently housed at the Biblioteca Marciana (Fondo ant. 539), at Venice.[1]
