Psalter. | There are two headpieces on f. 1r and on f. 45v, which are decorated with a cross and other symbols of Christ’s passion. The titles and the initials are rubricated. Folio 5r derives from another Psalter manuscript, which is dated to the 15th-16th centuries. The lower part of several folios has been cut off. Due to this damage there are few lacunae in the text. Marginal scholia, written in red colour, comment on the Psalter. The Odes are preceded by metrical titles. Nikolopoulos dates the manuscript to the 15th century. | Text-type: L.
