Approx. 7.5x8.5 inches.

Lives, deeds &c. of Nicetas (by the monk Theosthrictus), Charito the Confessor, Arethas and the Forty-two hundred and fifty-two («ἐν ἱστορίας εἴδει τῶν κατὰ τὸν Ὁμηρίτην πεπραγμένων»), Demetrius (Marciano consule), and the siblings Zenobius & Zenobia.

Fols. 72v-90r, from the Miracles of Saint Demetrius.  Incipit, «Μαρκιανός τις ἀνὴρ τῶν ἐν γένει καὶ πλούτῳ λαμπρῶν, καὶ εἷς τῶν τῆς συγκλήτου βουλῆς παρὰ βασιλεῦσιν ὑπάρχων...»

Small tear on fol. 78, not affecting text. Fol. 84 appears to have been sliced in the lower outside corner, but before being written on, so no text seems to have been lost.
