In RKG III.399 he is considered as the scribe of the codex and is dated to the 14th c. On the other hand, Vogel-Gardthausen (1909: 272) suggest that he might be an owner and they date him between the 10th and 12th centuries., Stefano Borgia (1731–1804).
Psalms and Odes. | The manuscript was brought from Constantinople and was added to the collection of Stefano Borgia during the second half of the 18th century. According to Holmes, “it exhibits various readings considerable in number, and some very remarkable’’. Some of the Odes are missing due to the loss of folios.Text-type: L.
