<p style='text-align: justify;'> The manuscript contains a collection of <i> Greek texts on rhetoric</i>, by Hermogenes (ca. 160-before 230 CE), Hephaestion (2nd c. CE), and Dionysius of Halicarnassus (ca. 60 - after 7 BCE). Hermogenes, a rhetorician born in Tarsos, is known as the author of a series of treatises on rhetoric, which enjoyed a great success, becoming canonical texts for the teaching of rhetoric in Byzantium, being read and commented on until the Renaissance. The Alexandrian grammarian Hephaestion wrote a treatise <i> On Metres</i> in 48 books, which was reduced to an <i> Enchiridion</i>, a " handbook", in a single book, present in this manuscript with other texts by him. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> The manuscript, on the basis of the script and of the watermarks, is datable to the second half of the 15th century. One scribe started the copy and another, with a more informal script, took over, and wrote a commentary in Latin at the end of the manuscript. </p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Dr Erika Elia</p>
