<p style='text-align: justify;'>The manuscript is a copy, written by the Dutch philologist and historian Theodore Rycke (1640-1690; latinized Theodorus Ryckius), of the alphabetical index of authors and works of the Greek manuscripts of the Vatican Library. The index is based on the "Grande Inventario" of the <i>Vaticani Graeci</i> 1-1486 by Leone Allacci (ca. 1586-1669), drawn up between 1614 and 1630 (tom. 1-2 now Bibliotheca Apostolica Vaticana, Vatt. gr. 2668-2669 olim Sala Cons.
