Catena in Psalmos. | The manuscript, defective at the beginning and at the end, presents an intertextual Catena to the psalms (77-103). The initial letters are decorated; each verse of the psalms starts with a letter rubricated in red or in blue. The scribe is always the same and seems to be the so-called Nicola di Gallipoli who also wrote other mss such as the Vind. suppl. gr. 37, the Angel. gr. 122 etc. (attribution by E. Sciarra). Heavily damaged by water and mold, f. 124 is reduced to a small fragment.Text-type: L.
