Notes
  • Ms. codex.
  • Title from printed catalog.
  • Collation: Parchment ; fols. 276 ; modern foliation in pencil ; some Greek numbers in brown in the upper margins of the misbound folios indicating the correct order of the folios.
  • Layout: 25 long lines per page ; hardpoint ruling ; prick-marks are sometimes visible in the margins.
  • Description: Written in brown ink by one scribe who wrote the text in variation of Perlschrift and the titles of the homilies in alexandrinischer Auszeichnungsmaiuskel ; marginal notes ; marginal Greek numerals for scholia.
  • Decoration: Except for the narrow strip preceding Oratio I on Easter, the text is accompanied by very little decoration. The main initials, outlined by the scribe in brown ink of the written text, are painted in blue, green, a dark reddish brown, and a dark blue or reddish purple that gleams as though it had a bit of silver in it.
Binding note
Rebound by Mick LeTourneaux in the Princeton University Preservation Office in 1995.
