  • Request

The Commentary of Servius on Virgil: that on the Eclogues begins at fol. 5, on the Georgies at fol. 30, on the Aeneid at fol. 98: with colophons, the usual prologues, and some marginal notes. The Life of Virgil ascribed to Donatus precedes, on fol. 1 (beg. 'Publius Virgilius Maro parentibus modicis fuit'), and on fol. 335 is the traditional epitaph on Pallas.

The Letters of Lentulus to Augustus and of Pilatus to Tiberius mentioned in the Libri Catalogue as on the last leaf are no longer there.
