Extracts from a Mēnaion, in Greek
Extracts from a Mēnaion, in Greek, comprising parts of November (fols. 3, 44), February (fol. 68), and March (fol. 98). The service for the κατάθεσις of st. George on Nov. 3 is prominent (fol. 3).
At fol. 114 is part of the Canon of Odes for the 'Ορθρος of Easter. The book perhaps contains local services for some monastery of st. George near Jerusalem, for at fol. 119v is '"Oδε πέρας είληφε πικτίδως θέου τό δώρον, και κλέος τώ κυρίω έξ έμού τουτλύτουτε, καλλινίκου ίερομονάχου' καί πρωτοσυγγέλλου τής άγίας πόλεως ίερουσαλήμ, καί ύποψιφίου γάζης, έτει ζρλε' έν δέ τής ένσάρκου είκονομίας αχκζ  έν μηνί ϊουνάριος ίνδικτίωνος θι...': in the hand of the scribe.
On fol. 120 is an 'Επιτάφιον an account of the burial of Christ.
