Comment This is the oldest preserved manuscript containing the Histories by Thucydides.
In the middle of the 12th century, John Tzetzes was charged with correcting the text of Thucydides. Kaldellis (2015: 68): 'In addition to correcting its flawed orthography and irregular accentuation, he wrote fifty scholia in the margins on various aspects of the text, mostly orthography. These are autograph comments.'
