  2. Fol. 195v. Δισσοὶ λόγοι (Dialexeis) (cod. S of E. Weber, Phil.-hist. Beiträge C. Wachsmuth ...überreicht, p. 35).

  10. At the end (fol. 318) are a few calendarial notes partly in Greek, partly in Latin, and the scribe's colophon, which contains an incorrect date: ''Eλαβε τέρμα έπὸ κτίσεως κόσμου εϕπθ' (5589) έλαϕηβολιῶνος πέμπτη έπὶ δέκα. At fol. 327b occurs the beginning of a Latin translation of Euclid's Phaenomena, perhaps by David Gregory.
