Minuscule 670

Minuscule 670 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 1186 (von Soden),[1][2] is a Greek minuscule manuscript of the New Testament, on parchment. Palaeographically it has been assigned to the 11th or 12th century. The manuscript is very lacunose.[3][4] Scrivener labelled it by 901e.[5]


The codex contains the text of the Gospel of Luke 8:3-24; 9:13-34, on only 2 parchment leaves (size 24 cm by 19 cm).[1][3] The text is written in one column per page, 26 lines per page.[3][6]

There are no divisions as the κεφαλαια or the Ammonian Sections.


The Greek text of the codex Kurt Aland did not place in any Category.[7]

It was not examined by using the Claremont Profile Method.[8]

The textual character of the codex can not be determined because of its a fragmentary condition.


Gregory dated it to the 11th or 12th century.[6] Currently the manuscript is dated by the INTF to the 11th or 12th century.[4]

The manuscript was brought to America in 1844 from Crete, by George Benton (along with Minuscule 669).[6] Formerly it belonged to La Crescenta/California, W.-L. Hall-Benton.[3][4]

The manuscript was examined by Harris and Clark.

Currently the manuscript belongs to a private collection. Officially its owner is unknown.[3][4]
