<p style='text-align: justify;'>The manuscript is an incomplete copy of the <i>Strategemata of Polyaenus</i> (2nd century CE). It was copied by Georgius Moschus in late 15th or early 16th century, and donated to the CUL by the bishop of London Cuthbert Tunstall (1474-1559): the donation note remains on <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(3);return false;'>f. [ii] recto</a>. It later entered into the Wren Library from a donation of Thomas Nevile (ca. 1548-1615), Master of Trinity College (1593-1615).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>A number of scholars have read the manuscript and one of them left a trace of the regret of not being able to read the whole text of Polyaenus: "O factum male!" (<a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(98);return false;'>f. 94v</a>). The royal librarian to King James VI and I, and King Charles I, Patrick Young (1584-1652), selected some variant reading from the Trinity College manuscript and they are now preserved in the manuscript <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://primarysources.brillonline.com/browse/codices-vossiani-graeci-et-miscellanei-online/vmi-08-fragmentum-chronici-eusebiani-etc'> Leiden, Bibliotheek der Rijksuniversiteit, Voss. Misc. 8</a>, ff. 18r-24r. The manuscript was also used by Pancratius Maasvicius (1658-1719) for his edition (<a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://reader.digitale-sammlungen.de/de/fs1/object/display/bsb10238084_00011.html'>Leyden 1690</a>).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
