Kyriakodromion, a series of homilies for 36 Sundays, based on lectionary texts, by Maximos the Peloponnesian.
Binding: The Byzantine binding of full dark brown goatskin over wooden boards is original. All edges of the boards are grooved, coming to a "Y" at the edges with the full thickness of the boards maintained at the corners on which the binder has placed a cross composed of five round elements supported on either side by annular stamps of two concentric circles. In the center of the panel formed by the frame is a lozenge (25 x 25 mm) with an unidentifiable combination of figures within, accented at the four corners a cruciform stamp, composed of five circles.
