Comment This is an Arabic manuscript with a Greek colophon.

Written by five different scribes. Scribe A (9th c.) copied ff. 15-46, 55-56, 83-86, 57-64r, 75-82; scribe B, Nasṭās ibn Liyūn ibn Abī al-Walīd (9th c.) copied ff. 64v-74, 87v-179r; scribe C (10th c.) copied ff. 1-6; scribe D (12th c.) copied ff. 7-14, 47-54; scribe E, Kerykos (9th c.) copied f. 179v. A sixth hand made some corrections in the text copied by scribe A.

The book epigram on f. 179v gives valuable information about the content of this manusript: initially, it contained the Psalms, the four Gospels, de Acts of the Apostles, the seven Catholic Epistles and the fourteen Pauline Epistles.

Schulthess (2018: 179): Si nous ne pouvons déterminer avec précision l’origine du manuscrit, rien ne vient soutenir Mar Saba comme lieu d’origine du manuscrit. Par contre, une origine dans les environs de la ville de Ḥoms, une ville importante dans le patriarcat d’Antioche, est possible".

The credits system has been implemented in 2019. Credits from before the new system was in use might be incomplete.
