Κωνσταντίνου Ἀκροπολίτου ῥητοικὰ ἔργα, κ.ἄ. A beautiful, clear archaizing hand. From 220v in at least one other, fine and more modern hand, though still with many uncials.

For contents and more, see Pinakes and Παπαδόπουλος-Κεραμεύς (vol. 1, pp. 120-123) in online resources.

31r  In the upper corner is written, φύλλα ιθ’ and λόγος α’. Other small notes and title throughout, though in general few extended scholia, except at 220r.

220r  Long note (approx. 13 lines) in bottom margin.

Folios 1-251 are from the 13th century; the other 37 folios were added in 1391/92. At the bottom of 251v is a note in a rude hand, apparently cursing whoever it was who broke the codex up: «κόψιμον ἤθελεν τὸ χέριν του ὁποὺ ἐλίωνεν ὧδε μέσα καὶ ἐξανάγραφεν τοῦτο τὸ βιβλίον.»

257 seems to have been damaged and repaired, with text later restored.

281r  Page is in calligram.

289 is mostly sliced off. 290 is just a sliver of a page (supressum vel nescio quid) with odd signs reminiscent of Linear B.
