<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript is a <i>Psalter</i>, probably copied in the 12th century. The Psalms are followed by the Odes, the sequence of hymns excerpted from various Biblical books, also known as canticles, which in the Orthodox tradition constitute a separate book of the Bible. The first nine of these are the basis for the canons which are a central component of Orthodox hymnography. Since the end of the manuscript has been lost, it is unclear whether it contained only this basic set of nine or the full set of fifteen Odes.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The manuscript is a relatively high-grade production, with headings, marginal apparatus and frequent minor initial letters gilded. The manuscript has suffered losses including some entire quires, while other quires have been bound out of order.
