NA26 is about the best you will be able to do on this.
It is 4 1/2 x 6 3/8 x 13/16. It does NOT have a dictionary. The smallest
lexicon I have seen is Alexander Souter's which is about the same size
as NA26 (1/2 inch taller). The dictionary for UBS3 was available at on
time as a separate vol. It was thin but no smaller than UBS3 in the
other dimensions.

All of the above are available on the used book market. If there is a
smaller GNT I have not seen it. You might want to check with an Eastern
Orthodox source, they may have a small Greek testament.
