Illuminated liturgical Menaion with fragments of a Psalter. | Ra 1064 is the companion volume of Ra 1066 and it also includes two folios of the same lost Psalter manuscript. Rahlfs dates these folios to the 12th century, whereas Parpulov dates them to the 13th century. The manuscript consists of several hymns and prayers for the feasts of the liturgical calendar during the months September-February. Several folios contain interlinear musical notation. According to Bucca (2001: 229), the manuscript shares similar characteristics with other musical manuscripts (Messan. gr. 96, Crypt. D. a 32, Reg. gr. 58 and 59).Collation: Ode 5:18c ἐπὶ] καὶ ἐπὶ (f. c); Ode 8, heading: οἱ τρεῖς ὡς ἐξ ἑνὸς στόματος ὕμνουν κ(αὶ) εὐλόγουν καὶ ἐδόξαζων τ(ὸν) θ(εὸ)ν ἐν τῆ καμίνω λέγοντες (f. a); Ode 8:52b: αἰνετὸς] ..ευμνητος (f. a); Ode 8:52d ὑπεραινετὸν] υπερυμνητον (f. a); Ode 9:75b ἡμέρας] ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς (f. a) | Text-type: Ra 55.
