Text in minuscule bolorgir, written in one column of 18 lines. The nine calendrical tables at the beginning of the codex are in black and red bolorgir, and the initials of the titles in each column are in red or blue erkat’agir. Subtitles throughout the text are in red bolorgir, with the initials of the subtitles in red erkat’agir. Seven quires with gatherings of 10 or 12 leaves; all except the last two quires are numbered with the letters of the Armenian alphabet, written in bolorgir in the lower margin of the page.
The manuscript is the work of two scribes (except for the colophons, inscriptions and prefatory material before the Gospel of Matthew, which were done later). The principal scribe wrote the entire text of the four gospels in bolorgir (cursive) script; he also wrote the prefaces and indexes that stand before each gospel. The other scribe wrote the numbers within the Canon Tables, as well as the text of the Eusebian Introduction and the Eusebian numbers throughout the manuscript. (Sanjian, p. 46)
Text in notragir, written by three different hands in one column: fols. 1-32 have 18 lines each, and fols. 33-59 have 13-15 lines each. Subtitles in red notragir or bolorgir, and initials throughout the codex in red notragir capitals. The quires are not numbered. Because of the many lacunae in the codex, the number of leaves in the gatherings cannot be determined.
Text in modern sheghagir, in black and red ink, written in one column of 23-26 lines. The book’s title is written in large, bold erkat’agir. Some large initials are in red erkat’agir; other smaller initials in erkat’agir or notragir capitals in black or red ink. The quires are not numbered.
