Bod. Roe 18b.  Madan no. 264.  Paper, mense Septembri, anno mundi 6857, manu Constantini Sapientis: «διὰ χειρὸς ἐμοῦ Κωνσταντίνου τοῦ σοφοῦ» (fol. 476v, ut app.).  475 folios (1-253, 254-476).

A later hand just subtracted 5508 from A.M. date and wrote «ἔτει τῆς ἐνσάρκου οἰκονομίας ͵ατμθʹ» in the margin, which Coxe (sub lem., §62; see Bibliography) and Πίνακες (see Online Resources) follow. But Moore (p. 734) is right in subtracting 5509, since the date is in September, and placing this at A.D. 1348.

For a detailed list of contents, see the entry in Coxe. The corrected edition of 1969 adds some bibliography and corrects "f. 445b" (under §45) to "446".  See Πίνακες for further bibliography.

Fols. 256v-294v   Psellus, De omnifaria doctrina Iter Psellianum no. 890 (PHI.167). Cf. also Bodl. Seld. Arch. supra 17, fols. 8r-86v.

Fols. 294v-303v  Solutiones problematum naturalium (Iter Psellianum no. 891 (PHI.168); cf. Symeon Seth, TLG 3113.003).

Provenance information on 475v longer than given by Coxe. Inter alia, «...εἴ τις βουληθῇ ποτε ταύτης [τῆς μονῆς] ἀποστερῆσαι, κεχωρισμένος ἔσεται τριάδος τῆς ἁγίας ἐν τῷ αἰῶνι τούτῳ [γε?] καὶ τῷ ἐλωσομένῳ...»
