Minuscule 213 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 129 (Soden), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it had been assigned to the 11th century.[1]



The codex contains almost complete text of the four Gospels, with only one lacunae, on 356 parchment leaves (size 20.5 cm by 15.5 cm).[1] Written in one column per page, 18 lines per page.[2] It contains the Eusebian tables, κεφαλαια, τιτλοι, few αναγνωσεις, and pictures.[3] The Ammonian Sections (Mark 234) and Eusebian Canons are present, but often irregular used.[2] The text of John 19:6-21:25 was supplemented in the 14th or 15th century.[2]


Aland did not include its text to any Category.


The manuscript was examined by Birch and Burgon.[2]

It is currently housed at the Biblioteca Marciana (Gr. Z 542), at Venice.[1]
