Notes

Contents: Proclus’ commentary on Plato’s First Alcibiades.

Latin Title: Proclus Diadocus in priorem Alcibiadem Platonis.

Greek Title: Πρώκλου διαδόχου εἰς τὸν Πλάτωνος πρῶτον Ἀλκιβιάδην.
f. 1r. incipit: “Τῶν Πλατωνικῶν διαλόγων....”

Decorative heading under the Latin title and lovely ornamental capital on this folio.
f. 1v.desinit: “τὸ κακὸν καὶ τὸ αἰσχρόν...”

The ms. was copied by the 16th- century Greek scholar and former librarian at Naples, John Mavromatēs.

Although Omont lists the ms. as Gr. 11 (as does microfilm’s original box), Pinakes has it as BM 406 and this shelfmark is given preference here.
