Forms part of the Kenneth Willis Clark Collection of Greek Manuscripts (David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Duke University)
Format: Manuscript codex.
Title supplied by cataloger.
Layout: Written in 1 column of 25-31 lines.
Script: The letters are generously spaced and each is formed with deliberation and there is a tendency to roundness, but not particularly beautifully formed, especially as seen in the looping characteristics of the ligatures.
Decoration: Throughout, in the upper and lower margins, the scribe has written in reddish bown ink references to other passages from which the text of the homilies have been taken, or to which the references in the text refer. Four small dots in a pinkish-red ink (different in many places from the ink that is used for the titles to the individual homilies), in a lozenge pattern, are used as signe des renvoies. The water damage, however, has obliterated most of corresponding signs in the margins. The ormamentation is simple: penwork in the ink of the text accented sometimes with red and black. Other ornamentation could include: guilloche pattern, buds filled with blackdots, cordiform scrolls, trefoil pattern.
