Binding: Binding of blind-stamped black (dark brown) goatskin over wooden boards, ca. 1600. Metal ornaments of 2 Byzantine crosses, each set with 10 garnets with crown-like bosses at each corner. The original binding is now separated from the leaves. The interior of the binding preserves both the original sewing and repairs for the multiple quires that made up the codex. At least twenty quires are wanting (determined by counting the sewings). Duke Greek MS 43 was also found in the same binding.
