<p style='text-align: justify;'> This fourteenth-century manuscript is entirely dedicated to the <i>Histories</i> of <i>Herodotus</i>, considered the founding work of history in Western literature. The manuscript is acephalous due to the loss of two quires, and bears the divisions into nine books, conventionally named after the nine Muses. It was borrowed by Richard Porson (1759-1808), who numbered the books and chapters in the upper margin of recto folios or in the text (cf. Cambridge University Archives, Grace Book Lambda, p. 413).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The manuscript has been cited as K since the Gaisford edition (1824), and previously as Askewianus, because it was part of Anthony Askew's collection.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>According to Rosén (Teubner edition, 1987), Nn.2.34 is closely related to Florence, Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana, Laur. Plut. 70.3 (siglum A in Herodotus' editions).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
