Iter Psellianum nos. 708, 711.

Pp. 61-90 (fols. 31r-45v): the Summary Catalogue gives these as «Τιμόθεος, ἢ περὶ δαιμόνων» (Patr. Gr. 122.820), but the manuscript gives that title only to the dialogue on pp. 66-90, a section is numbered by a later hand “|4” (incl. bar). The earlier section (pp. 61-66, numbered “|3|”) is titled in the manuscript, «Τοῦ Ψελλοῦ Τίνα περὶ δαιμόνων δοξάζουσιν Ἕλληνες». (The Catalogue of the Harleian Manuscripts translates this as “Pselli quædam de dæmonibus quos celebrant Græci”, but “quid putant” or “quid reuntur Græci” would be better.) Gautier (op. cit. bibliogr.) challenges the attribution. The writing is compact, with around 25 lines per page but still fairly wide margins, which are mostly empty except for a few indicators of contents (ex. gr. p. 63, «ἡ γοητεία» and «ἡ ὑφίστησις» [sic]).

Pp. 91sqq. Work no. “|5|”, Πρὸς Κωνστάντιον: Ἀδαμαντίου σοφιστοῦ Φυσιογνωμονικά (TLG 0731.001).
