Notes

Ms. codex.

Title for manuscript from rubric of predominant work (p. 1).

Erasure (p. 172) may be a colophon for the first text.

Quires 14 (p. 205-220) and 16 (p. 237-252) are palimpsests. The lower text was written on an orientation perpendicular to the second text. The lower text appears to have been documentary in nature.

These are pages that we pulled aside that disrupted the flow of the manuscript reader. These may be bindings, inserts, bookmarks, and various other oddities.
