Greek Psalter. | The manuscript is defective at the beginning. It contains 39 illustrations which recall those of the manuscript Vitr. 34. 3, of the Benaki Museum (cf. Weyl Carr-Cutler, 1976: 282, 300, 301 note nr. 22, 302 note nr. 27-28, 322). Between f. 93v and f. 94r, the manuscript was restored with a parchment fragment containing Arabic characters. The titles and letters are rubricated. Beneševič recognised the folios of Petropol. gr. 267 as belonging to Sin. gr. 48 (cf. Weitzmann, K., - Galavaris, G., 1990:83). | Text-type: L.
