The codex contains a complete text of the four Gospels on 310 paper leaves (18.5 cm by 13.5 cm). It is written in one column per page, in 19 lines per page.[2]

The text is divided according to the κεφαλαια (chapters), whose numbers are given at the margin, and their τιτλοι (titles of chapters) at the top. There is also a division according to the Ammonian Sections, (references to the Eusebian Canons were added by a later hand).[3]

It contains the Epistula ad Carpianum, Eusebian Canon tables, Prolegomena, lectionary markings at the margin (for liturgical use), incipits, Synaxarion, and Menologion.[3][4]

TextEdit

The Greek text of the codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Hermann von Soden classified it to the textual family Kx.[3] Aland placed it in Category V.[5] According to the Claremont Profile Method it represents textual family Kx in Luke 1, Luke 10, and Luke 20.[6]
