Minuscule 343 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 120 (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 a complete text of the four Gospels on 283 parchment leaves (17.3 cm by 12.1 cm). Written in one column per page, in 21 lines per page.[1] It contains Epistula ad Carpianum (added by a later hand), the Eusebian tables, κεφαλαια, τιτλοι, Ammonian Sections, Eusebian Canons, and pictures.[2][3]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[4]


The manuscript was written by Presbyter Antony, a monk, in September 1. It was partly examined by Scholz (Matthew and John). Burgon saw this manuscript. It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz (1794-1852).[5]

The manuscript is currently housed at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana (H. 13 sup.) in Milan.[1]
