Psalms and Odes. | The manuscript begins directly with the Psalms. First and last folios are lost. The title of the first psalm is rubricated and inserted inside a decorated square (f. 1r). The f. 17, and 24 are written by a later hand (s. XV) and added to compensate for lost folios. The kathismata are often indicated but they seem written by another hand. The initial letters and titles are rubricated. The manuscript has some marginal glosses. There are also decorations with floral ornaments (ff. 72r, 140r, 151v).Text-type: L with minor readings in accordance with B.
