'Εύκλείδου στοιχείων πρω̑τον', the 1st book of Euclid's Elements of Geometry, followed by the 2nd to the 15th books: the last two leaves injured: there are diagrams and scholia.

Fols. 2-3 are occupied with Φιλοπόνου σχόλια ει'ς τα' πρότερα τω̑ν δευτέρων α'ναλυτικω̑ν Άριστοτελους (cf. fol. 314), in parts damaged, ending with a circle of the winds. Fol. iv bears a Greek note which appears to be dated A.D. 1335. Latin 15th-cent. notes written in Italy are on fol. 315.
