It is a Γεροντικὥν or collection of ascetic anecdotes and precepts.
The first division-mark I detect is on f.22b.
περί νηστεὀας καί ἐγκρατεὀας τθ̑ς ἁρμοζοὀσης τοὶς μοναχικω̑ς ζω̑σιν ὁσκηταὶς (?) κατὰ θεὠ̑ν.
The second hand begins at f.107. It is ugly and bad comὺ pared with the first.
The last τὀτλος begins on f.267b and is the thirtieth.
I believe this to be the volume which is described in the Cat. MSS. Angl. as follows:
6157. 323. De curandis animi adfectibus. Liber iste distinguitur in titulos multos; multaque adducit ex S. Diadocho, Maximo, Palladio, Ephraemo, Isaaco, et Barsanuphio Syriis, et ex aliis Asceticis Graece.
The catalogue then goes on to give the contents of what is now O.7.4 under the same number (6157). The two books are of the same size.
The James Catalogue of Western Manuscripts
26-32 and 19 lines to a page. In two hands. The book has suffered severely from damp, the leaves at each end being fragments. It is now mounted on tracing paper throughout.
Part of the Gale collection, given to T.C.C. by Roger Gale in 1738.No. 433.
