Minuscule 220 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 457 (Soden), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it had been assigned to the 13th century.[1]



The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels, on 303 parchment leaves (size 9.7 cm by 6.8 cm).[1] Written in one column per page, 22 lines per page, in very small letters.[2] It contains κεφαλαια, τιτλοι, Ammonian Sections (in Mark 234), lectionary markings, synaxaria, the Eusebian Canons absent.[2]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[3]


It was examined by Alter.[2] Alter used it in his edition of the Greek text of the New Testament.[4]

It is currently housed at the Austrian National Library (Theol. Gr. 337), at Vienna.[1]
