Minuscule 222 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), A404 (Soden), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on paper. Palaeographically it had been assigned to the 14th century.[1]



The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels, on 346 paper leaves (size 21.8 cm by 15.4 cm), with some lacunae (Matthew 1:1-6:19; John 14:2-16:4; 16:7-fin).[1] Written in one column per page, 24-32 lines per page.[2] It contains a commentary (Victor's in Mark).[2][3] Aland did not place it in Category.[4]


The manuscript was brought by Busbeck from Constantinople (together with Minuscule 221).[2]

It is currently housed at the Austrian National Library (Theol. Gr. 180), at Vienna.[1]
