Description

It contains the text of the four Gospels on 457 paper leaves (25.3 by 17.5 cm). The text is written in two columns per page, 20 lines per page.[2] It contains a great number of marginal additions inserted by a later hand.[3] Among these marginal additions it has the doxology in Matthew 6:13, in Luke 1:28 phrase ? are written in smaller hand; Luke 22:43-44 (the agony); 23:17; 23:34; Pericope Adultera (John 7:53-8:11). On the other hand, the descent of the angel (John 5:3.4), which is wanting in many Bohairic manuscripts, stands in the text here.[4]

The text is not divided according to the Ammonian Sections. It contains portraits of the Evangelists before each Gospel. It has some itacistic errors.[5] It has some notes at the margin from later hand. According to Gregory its text is very good.[2]

The manuscript was written by Joannes, a monk and scribe,[3] in 1174.[2] The manuscript was brought by Wilkins in 1683 from Egypt.[5] It was examined by J B Lightfoot and Headlam (1889).

Horner used it in his edition of the Bohairic New Testament as a basis for the text of the Gospels.[6]

Currently it is housed at the Bodleian Library (Huntington 17) in Oxford.
