Dumbarton Oaks Manuscript no. 2 (accession no. 52.1 [nunc BZ.1952.1]), an eleventh-century Georgian-language menæum for December through February, of about 377 folios.

On folio 2r (the first on our film – and the first extant?) is written in a fairly recent and prob. American hand the name "Malson" [sic].  A large but faint inscription after 377v seems to read «Ἀριθ(μὸς) 6»

Occasional marginalia, as on 141v and 142r (probationes pennæ?).
