Contents: Plato’s Parmenides with commentary by Proclus and Psellus, De Ideis. (Iter Psellianum: [828] PHI.105)

Ms. is photographed from right to left.

f.447r-464v: Plato’s Parmenides with commentary by Proclus.  

There are two sets of foliation on the ms.: one is cropped and sometimes lacking in the top right-hand margin, the other is a later addition at the bottom of the right-hand margin.  This latter one is sometimes also obscured by the clip.  Rostagno and Festa seem to follow the upper foliation because of an empty folio earlier on in the ms.

At the bottom of f. 464v, there is an incredible monocondylic signature which, according to the catalogue (see Rostagno and Festa , p. 153 of the catalogue or the link in the electronic resources) belongs to Longinus the monk who  was commissioned to copy the ms. by John Contostephanus in 1358.

f. 465r: title: Σύνοψις εἰς τὰς Πλατονικὰς ἰδέας.
Incipit: “Αἱ τῶν ὄντων ἰδέαι....”

f.465v: desinit: “δι’ ὀλίγων δέ σοι παρ’ ἡμῶν καὶ σαφέστερον συνοψισθεῖσα. “

This is the end of the ms.

Psellus’ work is not listed in Pinakes as of July 2011.
