<p style='text-align: justify;'>The manuscript contains a <i>Greek philosophical miscellany</i>, comprising treatises and extracts mainly deriving from Aristotle. It is composed of three parts copied around the same time, two of which were written by the same scribe Nikolaos Sekoundinos (1402-1464). A colophon to one of them dates and locates its production to Florence in 1441. Nikolaos (also known as Nicolaus Secundinus, Nicholaus Secundinus, or Niccolò Sagundino) came from Negroponte (Euboea) and moved to Italy in 1438. Because of his good knowledge of Greek and Latin, he was an interpreter at the Council of Florence. He also served as a papal secretary for some years. He was interested in the Plato-Aristotle controversy of the period, taking a similar position to Cardinal Bessarion as a Platonist not really hostile to Aristotle.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
