Comment Shailor (1984: 14): 'Text was written by a single scribe. A later hand, bold and ill-formed, supplied the table of contents (ff. iii verso-iv verso), minor marginal notations and the foliation in the upper right corner (for ff. 1-60). Tinted drawing of Oppian writing his poem while contemplating fish in a nearby stream occurs on f. 1v (...) Written in southern Italy, probably in the area of Otranto (according to A. Zumbo), at the end of the 15th century'.
Occurrences f. 61r [21389] Ὀππιανὸς σελίδεσσιν Ἁλίπλοα φῦλα συνάψας [1476-1500]
