Constantine Porphyrogennetos
Whole ms.; palimpsest

Some pages obscured (ex. gr. 21v-23r), but not beyond legibility. Others (ex. gr. 35v/36r, 38r, 39r, 71v/72r, 132r) present greater difficulty

31r Photographed twice, one legible, the other barely so.

On some pages (ex. gr. 91v/92), the larger text is easy to make out, but the smaller one less so.

From 94r, after some obscurity, very clear again for many pages, with very few exceptions.
