Rome, Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, Vat. gr. 2125. No diktyon: 68755.
s. VI–VII  cf. Fraenkel, 347, on the different datings | Parchment, 416 ff., 295 × 179 mm, 1 col., 29 lines per page. |  Majuscule (Coptic Majuscule). | Provenance: Egypt. The codex probably did not come to Europe before the 9th century. It most likely came to Lower Italy before the 12th century, and later to France to the Abbey of S. Denis in Paris. In the second half of the 16th century, it was owned by R. Marchal, and in 1636, by Cardinal F. Rochefoucaud, who donated it to the Jesuit College of Clermont in Paris. The manuscript came to the Vatican in 1785. | Owners: René Marchal, Cardinal F. Rochefoucaud.
Codex Marchalianus. Prophetical Books of the Septuagint. | Collation: LXXGot; HoP (siglum XII) | Text-type: varying text-type. In case of the Dodekapropheton, Codex Marchalianus represents the Alexandrian text. In Isaiah, it is together with Codex Alexandrinus (A) witness to the old Alexandrian text-type with little Lucianic influence, and very rarely hexaplaric influence (cf. Ziegler, Isaias, 21–26). In the Corpus Ieremiae, it forms a text-form of its own, together with Codex Venetus (V) and some minuscule mss. (cf. Ziegler, Jeremias, 59–66). In Ezekiel, Codex Marchalianus represents the O-group together with Ra 88-Syh. In the book of Daniel, Codex Marchalianus provides the θ-text, with several singular readings
