Gregory dated the manuscript to the 14th century.[4] Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 14th century.[3]

The manuscript was examined by Antonio Rocci in 1882.[4] It was added to the list of New Testament manuscripts by Scrivener (622)[5] and Gregory (824e). Gregory saw it in 1886.[4]

Currently the manuscript is housed at the Biblioteca della Badia (A' α. 1), in Grottaferrata.[2][3]
