'Σερήνου' Αντνσέως ɸιλοσόɸον περί Kυλίνδρου τομης βιβλίον [and, fol. 36, 'περί Kώνου τομήϛ']. Ex MS. Bibliothecte Regise Parisiensis cod. 2152': emended from a collation of codd. 2714, 2719 in the same library, but without figures. The few corrections seem to be by Edm. Halley, who printed the two works from this MS. in 1710. At end:-- 'Codex hic descriptus est ... anno mdcciv et transmissus in Angliam anno mdccvi'.
