Film came with a thin, red, plastic strip over the frame containing 24r (near the end of Planudes' praise of Saint Diomed). Reason unknown. It has left a mark, but the darker mark obscuring the right one third or so of the page seems to have been preexistent.

This film contains Maximus Planudes (TLG 4146), "Comparatio Hiemis & Veris" and "In Sanctum Diomedem"; and Gregory of Cyprus (TLG 9006), "Encomium in Andronicum II".
