  • "De Arithmetica". Book II, chapters 4-6 (ed. Friedlein pp. 88-91) and book II, chapters 23-24 (Friedlein pp. 107-110). J. G. Friedlein edited the standard printed edition of the "Arithmetica", and comparison of the manuscript with Friedlein's text shows that about two to four letters are cut away at the side of folio 136 r-v, and a line of text at the foot of each page. This copy was made by an anonymous scribe in a caroline hand.
