N. T. begins at fol. 320. At fol. 406 are the 'Interpretationes Hebraicorum nominum secundum Remigium': followed by some 15th cent. notes on parts of the Bible.

Fol. 1 is a Dominican Veronese calendar, which is certainly part of the MS., and not foisted in, though perhaps copied in a little later: it bears the 16th cent. inscription 'Celestinorum de Medunta [Mantes], signatus 667', the first three words erased. On fol. 319 are the Eusebian Canons.
