Forms part of the Kenneth Willis Clark Collection of Greek Manuscripts (David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Duke University)
Format: Manuscript leaves.
Titles from opening rubrics.
Layout: Written in 2 columns of 33 lines; 33 lines ruled with a dry point on the hair side across the full width of the leaf; pricking marks are not visible.
Script: Written in a very regular roundish, smooth flowing hand, letters mostly connected, except where an omicron appears in either the medial or initial position; pendant in brown ink with a rather wide reed pen. The letters slant slightly in the direction of the line of writing with no spacing between words. There are very few uncial letters and none are enlarged abnormally.
Decoration: On fol. 1v at the point in the text to which the reference is made is an outlined penwork initial "A" in red ink with knotted stems and leaf arm in the middle margin. On fol. 2r where Homily 40 on Genesis commences is an ornamental penwork band in red ink, with the width of the column (15 x 75 mm) consisting of running leafy acanthus scrollwork which forms within the running patterns three palmettes shapes, all within double ruled frame with corner trefoil finials. The initial letter phi in red is formed of a compass drawn circle (20 mm in diameter) the inner side with running acanthus leaf pattern, resting on a cone-shaped pedestal supporting the central stem of the letter which had foliate bands, topped by a slender two-part folial finial anchored to the lower by a bud the pointed end of which emerges opposite the end of the stem of the phi inside the top of the circle.
Title cataloged from existing description.
