Forms part of the Kenneth Willis Clark Collection of Greek Manuscripts (David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Duke University)
Format: Manuscript codex.
Title supplied by cataloger.
Layout: Written in 1 column of 17 lines; leaves 1-236 parchment, leaves 237-248 paper.
Script: The hand is a quite small, carefully executed minuscule with some alternate use of uncial and minuscule characters with a slightly perceptible slant to the right, pendant, done with a very fine nibbed reed pen in brown ink.
Decoration: In the chapter lists, the numbers and initials are gilt and the text is in a deep red. The Eusebian canon numbers are in gilt in the margins. There are few running penwork ornamentation, mostly an unbroken series of minims with foliate finials. For the beginning of the three gospels--Mark, Luke and John--each is provided with rectangular bar headpieces that enclose ornamental titles. Distinctive intial letters are found only at the beginning of Luke and John, whereas the initial letter for the beginning of Mark is simple red ink penwork with flourishes.
