The Comma Johanneum in GA 177 (BSB Cod. Graec. 211)

Today, I found out that yet another New Testament Greek manuscript has gone online, min. 177. It is found at the Digitale Bibliothek of the M√ľnchener Digitalisierungszentrum.
The shelf mark of the manuscript is (BSB) Cod. Graec. 211.
Interestingly, this is the manuscript Daniel Wallace wrote about in July last year, because he found a version of the Comma Johanneum (the spurious expansion to 1 John 5:8) in the top margin of the manuscript when he consulted it in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in M√ľnchen. His report (‘The Comma Johanneum in an Overlooked Manuscript’) had no image of the page, but now I can give you one:
There are other Greek manuscripts in the BSB collection; perhaps someone at the Evangelical Textual Criticism weblog (there is of course no such thing as “evangelical” textual criticism different from ”textual criticism” proper, but that does not matter) can put together a nice listing of these?
