Fols. 370r-373v: Photius I, Saint, Patriarch of Constantinople, ca. 820-ca. 891. Five letters. (Not listed in Pinakes).

369v:  Begins, after a couple lines of the previous chapter, with the third chapter of Περὶ Γάμων.  Incipit caput, «Δυσχερεστέρα δὲ καὶ οὐκ εὐκατάληπτός ἐστὶν ἡ τῶν ἐκ πλαγίων βαθμῶν εὕρεσις...»  There follow the fourth, fifth and sixth chapters.  The last of these seems to end with the end of the page and is marked with the symbol (three dots in a triangle) that closes the other chapters; the page ends «...οὐκοῦν καλῶς εἴρηται ὅτι ὁ ἀδελφὸς δευτέρου βαθμοῦ ἐστιν.»

370r:  Begins with a new paragraph (a continuation from the previous page’s chapter?), incipit «Πάλιν, ἐάν τις σε ἐρωτᾷ, ὁ θεῖος πόσ{τ}ου σοί ἐστι βαθμός, λέγε ὅτι τρίτου...» and desinit «...δύνασαι καταλαβεῖν τοὺς βαθμούς.»

370r:  Continues with a new section, untitled but labeled simply «Φωτίου τοῦ ἁγιωτάτου πατριάρχου Κωνσταντινουπόλεως».  Incipit, «Πάντα τῆς ὑμῶν ἀρχιερατικῆς τελειότητος καὶ πνευματικῆς σοφίας γέμει...»  Until at least 373v, the verso pages are labeled at the top, Περὶ Γάμων.

374r:  Apparently blank (as far as one can tell from microfilm), except for an inscription at the top, [ἐν ᾗ?], Περὶ τῶν γαμικῶν συναλλαγμάτων, [ν?]
