<p style='text-align: justify;'>This fragment is a bifolium of a manuscript containing the <i>Letters of Libanius</i>, a Late Antique orator and teacher of rhetoric, probably copied during the 14th century. The bifolium was acquired by Constantin von Tischendorf (1815-1874) during travels in the East, from <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href=''>Sinai, Monastery of St. Catherine, Cod. gr. 1198</a>. This bifolium was originally between ff. 111v and 112r. Thirty-three more leaves from the same manuscript were donated by Tischendorf to the University Library of Leipzig, and today make up <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href=''> Leipzig, Universitätsbibliothek Leipzig, Cod. gr. 38 (Tischendorf 7)</a>.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
