Notes

BnF Ancien fonds: Codex parisinus græcus 1310 (Medicianus-Regius 3118; olim 1334; olim 447; olim mccxix; olim 29).  Paper, second half of the fifteenth century (Moore p. 736, but see below), 344 folios.  Thesaurus litterarum: John Tzetzes, John Zonaras, Paul the Silentiary, the History of Tantalus, maxims (sententiæ), Michael Psellus, Battle of the Frogs & Mice, Procopius on silkworms, Theodore Ptochoprodromus, Æsop's fables, Empedocles, &c. &c.  See Omont in Online Resources for details.  

One of the scribes according to Πίνακες is the Νικόλαος Σοφιανός of the Repert. der griech. Kopisten nos. 1.318, 2.437, 3.517.  There are at least two scholars by that name: one from Corcyra and one from Crete, both from the sixteenth century (see Sathas pp. in Bibliography and Online Resources), one of them a scribe also in Parisinis græcis 414, 433, 1162, 1305, 1661, 1963, 2365, 2400, 2415, 2517, 2592 and 2961 (see footnotes in Vogel & Gardthausen in Online Resources for more on his identity, as well as Hody). If the Νικόλαος Σοφιανός of Paris. gr. 1310 be the same as that in the mss. above, then 1310 will have to be redated to the sixteenth century. (He does not to our eyes seem to be the same as the Nicolaus Sophianus of Scorialensis 79 (nota antiqua σ.i.19), for whom see "Escorial Copyist" in our Online Resources.)

Three-page table of contents (Latin) at the beginning of the manuscript.  At least one "bis" folio (no. 70).
