    At the top of f.1 is:
    ὁ ἐρανίσας τὸ παρὸν θεοδόσιος ἐστίν ὁ μικρός.
    ὑπόθεσις του̑ περὶ πρέσβεων τεύχους ῥωμαίων πρὸς ἐθνικούς.
    Ὅσοι τω̑ν πάλαι ποτὲ βασιλέων.
    The first Excerpt from Petrus Patricius begins on f.3.
    Ὅτι βαλλεριανὸς εὐλαβηθεὶς.
    The last, from Theophylactus Simocatta.
    On the last leaf is a πίναξ of the contents.
