Bodleianus Holkhamicus græcus 25 (olim Earl of Leicester Library gr. 54). Paper, ii+325 leaves. Religious miscellany.

Codices Chrysostomici Græci Vol. 1, no. 250 (which see, along with Πίνακες in Online Resources, for a detailed list of contents).

Barbour (sub lem.), "A and B. 16th cent., A [fols. 1-187] written by Markos Morezenos, B [fols. 187-229] by Manuel Malaxos; C. [fol. 229-end] 15th cent. Morezenos 66. Giustiniani 73."  

For Malaxos see Vogel & Gardthausen in Bibliography and Online Resources and British Library link ("Example from the Scribe") also in Online Resources; for him and Morezinos, see Sathas.

The author of the short treatise on dactyls (fol. 227r/v) is, as Barbour says in her list of contents, Nicholas Malaxos (Vogel & Gardthausen pp. 350sq.), but she ascribes the copying to his brother Marcus (V-G p. 278). The pages seems, however, to be an autograph, if not one marked by religious humility, unless «τῆς χειρὸς» be taken to mean "copied from an autograph by": see below. On the two brothers, see Sathas pp. 184sq. in Bibliography and Online Resources. For Morezinos see p. 294.

227v  Desinit «...καὶ οὐ πλείονες οὐδὲ ἐλάττονες, ἀλλ' ὅσοι ἂν μὴε περιττῶς, μηδὲ ἐλλειπῶς, ἀλλ' ἀρκούντως πρὸς τὴν τοιαύτην σημασίαν ἔχοιεν:~ »
