"Index Græcobarbarus, referendus ad eam partem hujus codicis, quæ continet Harmenopuli promptuarium: item ad folia 263 et 264.

"Codex chartaceus varia manu scriptus, quem a Loido Caracosâ aspris 1200 emit Sacellarius Chii, sacerdos Michael Elæabulcus, anno Christi 1581.  Eundem Codicem emit a Joanne quodam sacerdos Michael Mamucas Notarius publicus Chii —anno Christi 1621, ut in [crossed out: 'finibus'] calce codicis legitur."

Marginal notes: by "Loido" (which is written in somewhat unsure letters), "fors. Ladonico Cæsaraugustano" (but this should read Loïzo).  By the price, "*pro 1200 legendum videtur 120."
