The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels on 210 parchment leaves (21 cm by 14.6 cm). Written in one column per page, in 29 lines per page.[1] The writing very rough, the stops being mostly red crosses.[2] It contains Epistula ad Carpianum, the Eusebian tables, Prolegomena, tables of κεφαλαια, τιτλοι, κεφαλαια, Ammonian Sections, Synaxarion, Menologion, subscriptions, and stichoi. The Eusebian Canons absent.[3]


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

The text contains many errors and rare readings.[5]


Wiedmann and J. G. J. Braun collated portions of the manuscript for Scholz (1794-1852).[2] The manuscript was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scholz.[6]
