10th c., middle. In the late 11th - early 12th c. the Gospel of Matthew was supplemented with a quire written in Glagolitic script over an earlier Glagolitic gospel text, the so-called Zographou palimpsest. In the very end of the codex there is a 13th-c. Cyrillic synaxarion (church calendar) of 16 folia. The MS was found in Zographou Monastery. In 1860 the Zographou brotherhood donated the codex to the Russian emperor Alexander II (1855-1881).
