Made up of three MSS.:

A. First half of 10th cent.:

  1. Fol. 1. 'De affinitatis gradibus' beg. 'Pater est a quo': perhaps a preceding leaf is lost), followed by chapters 'de ponderibus' and 'de mensuris.'
  2. Fol. 4. 'Fulgentii episcopi [expositio sermonum antiquorum] ad Calcidium Grammaticum': a glossary of obsolete words and phrases: beg. 'Sandapila feretrum mortuorum': at end 'Explicit.'

B. 9th cent.:

  1. Fol. 6. Servius de Centum Metris, the first leaf lost: beg. 'per [pe]des duplices conputari in ceteris': at end 'Finit.'
  2. Fol. 11v. 'Incipit de octo partibus. orationibus. seu definitiones partium ...': beg. 'Oratio est ordinatio dictionum': ends 'sed figuratę.'

C. Perhaps about A.D. 900:

  1. Fol. 16. An anonymous Latin grammar by way of question and answer: the first leaf is in parts illegible: on fol. 17 is, for example, 'Interrogatio. Cuius generis est hoc nomen [homo] ? Responsum. Communis. Interr. Da exemplum. Resp. Dicit Agustinus, commendabat homo (homini) hominem, id est Christus Iohanni Mariam': ends 'estimande sunt', with some specimens of metre. This appears not to be in Keil's Grammatici Latini or the supplement to that work
  2. Fol. 21. 'Incipit Epistola Hieronimi de pedibus': beg. '1. Pirrichius ex tempore ii.'
