Library label (photograph, first image on film):

Department: M.S.S.
Catalogue: ADD. 6898
Order: PS/6/12908
Title: Galeni Medendi Methodus Græce (folio 160)

Despite both of the above, the film actually holds fols. 159r-160v.

Second library label (photograph, on either side of second text):

British Museum
Department: M.S.S.
Catalogue: ADD. 36,749
Order: PS/6/12908
Title: Epistles and Poems of St. Gregory Nazianzenus, etc. (folios 131v-135r)

Contrary to the above, the folios in question contain poems by Chœrosphactes and/or pseudo-Chœrosphactes; see manuscript description.

The very top of Add. 36749, fol. 131v («στίχοι Λεοντος») has been partially cut off, but can still be made out. This is otherwise a very clear and legible film.
