No. 13 in "Greek Manuscripts in the Bodleian Library" (anno 1966), where it is dated (contra Coxe above) to the eleventh century.  

No. 34 in Wilson's Mediaeval Bookhands (see Bibliography), with plate in second volume of the whole of fol. 273v.  Also there dated to the eleventh century.

Competing numeration. A consistent on in Arabic numerals, centered over the text, runs from 1-321. This begins at page fol. βʹ according to the numbers in the upper righthand corner.  They run so until fol. 20/καʹ after which the centered numbers continue with 21, while the ones in the corner continue with an Arabic 30.
