By far the greater part of the book is blank: but past the middle of it are 33 leaves written, containing
Αὐτολύκου περὶ ἐπιστολών καὶ δύσεων βιβλίον πρώτον
Τῶν ἀπλανῶν ἀστέρων αἱ ἐπιτολαί τε καὶ δύσεις.
The Greek text is written in the upper division. In the lower it was intended to write the Arabic version, but only one page of this has been done.
The second book begins after 15 leaves, and occupies 16 leaves.
Then follows
Αὐτολύκου περὶ σφαίρας κινουμένης,
Ὁμαλῶς λέγεται φέρεσθαι σημεῖα.
Ending unfinished on the 3rd leaf with line 1 of section iv.
