A note on fol. 15 shows that the Paulus Silentiarius is from Holsten's selection (1626, revised 1629) from Salmasius's transcript of the Palatine MS.: and that D'Orville wrote much of the volume, partly from the Palatine Anthology itself. The original MS. of Holsten is itself known as the Codex Anthologiae Barberinianus. The old pagination (307-340, 151-306) connects this MS. with MS. D'Orville 234, though they differ in size.
