Duelling foliation, one in a lighter hand, followed by Coxe (see Bibliography) and another, closer to the corner and not mentioned by Coxe, in a heavier hand.

For detailed list of contents, see Coxe's entry in the Bibliography and Online Resources, which Barbour & Wilson in their 1969 revision leave unchanged, except to add at the head that "fol. 1 has a note in Spanish, 16th cent., signed Cordona [sic]."  The copy on Google Books (in the Online Resources) is obscured for Coxe's §§ 3-13 (fols. 75-117).

164r/178r has «ἢ αἰποίεσθαι» or «ἢ αἰποίεσθε» along with the "178".
