Currently it is dated by the INTF to the 7th-century.[1][3]

The codex was divided, three of its leaves now are held at the Vatopedi monastery (1219) at Athos peninsula. These leaves contain text of Luke 3:23-4:2; 4:30-43; 21:4-18. Two other leaves with text of Luke 4:3-29 are held in the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Suppl. Gr. 1155,I), at Paris.[1] The leaves are in a fragmentary condition. It was examined and described by Henri Omont.[2]

From the same manuscript probably originated another leaves now catalogued as Uncial 0138.[4]Hermann von Soden designated it as ε 75. 0138 contains Gospel of Matthew 21:24-24:15. It is held in the Protatou monastery (56,8 ff.),[5] at Athos peninsula.

The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Alexandrian text-type. Aland placed it in Category II,[1] it means it has some alien readings.
