Minuscule 406 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 130 (in the Soden numbering), is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Paleographically it had been assigned to the 11th century.[1]



The codex contains the text of the four Gospels on 297 parchment leaves (16.5 cm by 13.5 cm) with lacunae (Mark 4:41-5:14; Luke 3:16-4:4; John 20:3-21:25). Written in one column per page, in 18 lines per page.[1] It contains tables of κεφαλαια, κεφαλαια, τιτλοι, Ammonian Sections, but it does not contain the Eusebian Canons.[2][3]


The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Caesarean text-type.


Wiedmann and J. G. J. Braun collated portions of the manuscript for Scholz (1794-1852).[3] The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz.[4]

The manuscript is currently housed at the Biblioteca Marciana (Gr. I. 11) in Venice.[1]
