Codex Macedoniensis or Macedonianus designated by Y or 034 (in the Gregory-Aland numbering), ε 073 (von Soden),[1][2] is a Greek uncial manuscript of the Gospels, dated palaeographically to the 9th century. The manuscript is lacunose.[3]


The codex contains 309 parchment leaves (18 cm by 13 cm). The text is written in one column per page, and 16 lines per column.[3]

The codex contains almost complete text of the four Gospels with six lacunae (Matthew 1:1-9:11; 10:35-11:4; Luke 1:26-36; 15:25-16:5; 23:22-34; John 20:27-21:17).[1]

The texts of Matthew 16:2b–3 (Signs of the Times) and Pericope Adulterae (John 7:53-8:11) are omitted.[4]

The Greek text of this codex is a representative of the Byzantine text-type. Aland placed it in Category V.[3]


The manuscript was inadequately cited by Constantin von Tischendorf. The codex was acquired by Braithwaite, who described it in Expository Times in 1901.[5] Gregory an extracts from the collation of Braithwaite. According to von Soden, the manuscripts belongs to Ik-text. Kirsopp Lake found that this manuscript shares with Family Π.[6]

According to Metzger this manuscript "deserves to be studied more thoroughly than has hithero been the case".[7]

The codex is located in the Cambridge University Library (additional manuscripts 6594).[3][8]
