Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts

The author, active in the 6th century, was a Neoplatonist philosopher and one of the most important ancient commentators on Aristotle, who sought to harmonise the author's work with that of Plato.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>This copy has been identified from its script as the work of the scribe Paulos, who worked as a bookbinder as well as a copyist in the university town of Padua.
