Notes
  • Ms.
  • Title and dating from Ricci, S. de.
  • The text begins, following an illegible rubric: A(i)sōmen tō K[yri]ō endoxōs gar dedoxastai ... (beginning the set of the 9 Odes).
  • Imperfect at end (1 or more leaves wanting, with loss of text).
  • Hierarchical obedience of the scribes or their sponsors could not be determined; no signs of a denominational bent have been found. The rite is Byzantine.
  • Written in Hodegon-style Greek script, mostly 12 lines to a page, by at least 2 scribes (change of hand with f. 64); probably in Egypt.
  • The leaves are foliated in Greek, [alpha]-omicron.
  • Leaves 2 (beta), 48 (mu ēta), and 68 (zeta ēta) are missing; the foliator overlooked a leaf following f. 58 (nu ēta); actual number of preserved leaves is 68.
  • One leaf 18 x 13 cm folded to 13 x 9 cm laid in in front (split in two halves) and another of same size at end; both contain (Christian, presumably Melchite) prayers in Arabic. They appear to be a later addition.
  • The paper is saturated with beeswax.
  • Contemporary binding in the saddlebag style.
  • Purchased by LC from Rev. A.E. Shadd of Washington, D.C., in July 1946.
  • In Greek.
  • Former owners: Sing Humsamn (d. ca. 1929); A.E. Shadd.
