Minuscule 391 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), A128 (Soden), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Dated by a colophon to the year 1055.[1]



The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 232 parchment leaves (29.1 cm by 23.2 cm) with lacunae (Matt. 1:1-8; Luke 1). Written in one column per page, in 21 lines per page.[1] It contains Epistula ad Carpianum, Prolegomena, lists of κεφαλαια, κεφαλαια, τιτλοι, Ammonian Sections, Eusebian Canons, and a commentary.[1]

It did not contain the pericope John 7:53-8:11. It was added in 15th century.[2]


The manuscript was given to Pope Benedict XIII (1724-1730) by Abbachum Audriani, an abbot of Athos.[2]

The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz (1794-1852).[3]

The manuscript is currently housed at the Vatican Library (Ottob. gr. 432) in Rome.[1]
