<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript, probably copied in the 17th century, consists largely of <i>Epigrams selected from the Greek Anthology</i>, the collection of over 2,000 short poems compiled in the 10th century by Konstantinos Kephalas and revised in the 14th century by Maximos Planoudes. Most of the manuscript was the work of a single copyist.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The modern foliation of the manuscript does not follow the actual order of the folios, [**but accords with the order in which the various epigrams customarily appear in the Anthology. Since the foliation is more recent than the current binding, this disparity presumably does not reflect any physical reordering of the folios, but rather a decision to impose the "correct" textual order over the physical actual state of the manuscript. Since the epigrams present are merely a selection rather than forming a full copy of the collection, there is no reason to suppose that they were ever arranged in an order conforming with that established in the full Anthology**].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>A few Latin epigrams have been added at the beginning and end, mainly by another hand which may be that of John Fountagne, who left an ownership note on <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(5);return false;'>f. 1r</a>.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Christopher Wright</p>
