Psalms in Greek, Latin, and Arabic. | It is uncertain if this Psalter originally contained the Odes: fol. 173v, which is now its last page, was left blank by the scribe. The manuscript is closely related to the trilingual praxapostolos GA 460 (diktyon 69482), which is written by a different Greek hand but is of very similar size (280 × 230 mm), layout (28 lines of text per page), and date (s. XII/1). Decorated initials in red ink.Text-type: L.
