1. f.1 S. Johannes Damascenus de adorandis imaginibus adversus Constantinum Cabalinum (Migne, P. G. XCV.309-344)
Begins imperfectly in §10 (Migne col. 325).
καὶ οὕτω κατὰ μικρὸν άνάγεις πρὸς τὰ άόρατα.
Ends f.12 as in Migne.
2. f.12 Του̑ ἐν ἁγίοις πατρὸς ἡμω̑ν καὶ ὁμολογητου̑ Ἰωσὴφ άρχιεπισκόπου Θεσσαλονίκης λόγος εἰς τὸν τίμιον καὶ ζωοποιὸν σταυρόν
Σταυρου̑ πρόκειται σήμερον ἑορτὴ.
Ends f.25, almost illegible.
Printed in Gretser, de Cruce II.116, and Combefis, Bibl. patr. Gr. concionat. 136.
3. f.25 Ἱππολύτου του̑ μακαριωτάτου καὶ μάρτυρος ἐπισκόπου Ῥώμης λόγος περύ τῆς συντελείας του̑ κόσμου καὶ περὶ του̑ άντιχρίστου καί εἰς τὴν δευτέραν παρουσίαν του̑ κυρίου ἡμω̑ν Ἰησου̑ Χριστου̑ Ἐπειδὴ οἱ μακάριοι.
It is the spurious tract printed in Migne, P. G. X.903.
The first leaf of this goes down ἐν νῷ φέροντες (§2). After this another text begins abruptly (f.31).
ἐν σφαγῆ . ὁ δὲ ἐξ ἐθνω̑ν θεὸς ἐν σαρκὶ καὶ ὁ μὲν τῆ σκιᾶ ἠτένιζεν . ὁ δὲ τῷ ἡλίω καί θεω̑ προσέτρεχε καὶ οἱ μὲν δήσαντες χριστὸν άπεπέμποντο . οἱ δἱ ἐξ ἐθνω̑ν προθύμως ἐδέχοντο αὐτόν..
It ends with a long speech of Joseph to Pilate (δός μοι του̑τον τὸν ξένον) and may be a bit of no.2.
f.30 is a second leaf of Hippolytus, and carries on the text to §4.
