Psalter with interlinear commentary. | The manuscript is defective at the beginning. The text presents interlinear glosses and there are also several marginal annotations. There are friezes (i.e. pp. 10, 211) and decorated initial letters. The psalms are divided into καθίσματα, δόξαι and διαψάλματα. The indication of κάθισμα is often inserted in a circle placed on the outer margin (i e. p. 274). Interlinear glosses are characterized by the extensive use of abbreviations.Text-type: L.
