s. XVI  ca. 1540–1560 (indicated by the watermarks), cf. ÖNB Catalogue | Paper, II + 105 ff., 210 × 150 mm, 1 col., 27 lines per page. | Provenance: Johannes Sambucus (1531–1584) acquired the manuscript for a price of 5 ducats (cf. note on p. 1r). Court library binding with supralibros of Gerard van Swieten (1700–1772), dated 1754. | Owner: Johannes Sambucus (1531–1584).
Sir. | Miscellaneous manuscript, containing, inter alia, Sirach. Ra 744 must be excluded as a witness to the Septuagint text, since it depends on a printed edition whose manuscript sources are known. Ziegler’s assessment that this manuscript forms the basis for the Aldina in the case of the Book of Sirach is wrong. The text is in fact based on this edition. See Albrecht’s blog post (2024-05-01). | Collation: LXXGot
