It is a transcript of two Paris MSS., Ex Codice MS. B. R. no.1219 siue Regio secundo (Paris Bib. Nat. Fonds Grec, 460?) and Ex Codice MS. Bibl. Reg. no.56 (ibid. 461?).
From the latter the main part of the text is taken: gaps and the hypothesis and capitula are supplied from no.1219, the various readings of which are recorded throughout in the margin. All that is taken from no.56 is in a regular copyist's hand: the supplements from no.1219 are in another less regular hand, which appears to be that of Claudius Sarravius.
On f.58a at the end of the text is
In gratiam praestantissimi et Eruditissimi Viri ISAACI VOSSII I. V. D. describebam Lutetiae Parisiorum Decembri 1647. Egi Claudius Sarrauius.
