The 17th and 18th books of Priscianus's Commentarii grammatici, being the two books on syntax (de constructione), here considered as a separate work in two books, see fol. 35: with a few glosses.

Some scribbling on fol. 72v gives a title 'Priscianus Minor.' The date 'Mcccxiij' occurs several times on fol. 72.
