Commentary on Psalms by Theodoret of Cyrrhus. | The manuscript is well preserved. It is composed of two parts. The first, in paper, representing the start and the end of the manuscript, is an addiction of the 13th or 14th century, as the main hand suggests. The second, in parchment, homogeneously written in minuscule bouletée, preserves the complete Commentary on Psalms by Theodoret of Cyrrhus (Protheoria-Ps. 150) and some Odes with excerpta from Theodoret (In Danielem), Chrysostome (Expositiones in Psalmos) and Origen (Scholia et fragmenta in Evangelium Luca).Text-type: B with influence of L. διηρπαζον (L 55) , θλιβοντων αυτον (1098 L A) , αντιλογιας λαου (R L)
