|Palaeographical information||Several verses are introduced with initials written in red ink.
|Contextual information||The epigram is written after the treatise 'To the Shepherd'.|
|Comment||Meesters - Ricceri (2018: 294): "There is a discrepancy between the actual number of 134 vv. preserved in the manuscript and a note at the end of the poem mentioning 135 vv.".
The title is written in the right margin. The words παραπλήσιος (v.48) and παρόμοιος (v.73) are also accompanied with a supralinear tachygraphic sign for the -ον ending. The word συγκεκραμένον (sic., v.114) contains the corrected letters (υ, μ) supra lineam.
Note that the order of verse groups vv. 26-49 and vv. 50-72 must be inverted, since fol. 418 containing these lines has been bound in a way that mixes up the recto and verso sides. See Meesters - Ricceri (2018: 294-295) for codicological and paleographical remarks supporting this hypothesis.
