Made up of two MSS, comprising 'Ανθολογίας'Επιγραμμάτων βιβλίον ἔννατον' in six divisions corresponding to those in MS. D'Orville 237.

Adding (at p. 273) the'Επιδεκτικά, but after the first two lines of the Στέφανος of Meleager a 17th cent. MS. is added (at p. 305), which contains the whole of that poem and a number of other miscellaneous epigrams.

There are some Latin notes and an index to the'Αναθηματικά, as well as a literal Latin translation of the first few epigrams in the volume.

Pp. 1-304 were written by Johannes Clericus (d. 1736), according to Strackhovius.
