Paper, about 12 in. by 4; 83 leaves, of which ff. 1 — 5, 34,
42 — 44, and 53 — 83, are blank ; the quires, eight in number,
are signed with letters, the first having 14 leaves and the last
only 9 ; number of lines in a page very variable. Written in a
cursive Jacobite hand towards the end of the xviiith cent,
(see below).

This volume contains translations of the Aristotelian logic
in Syriac and Arabic.

1. The De Interpretatione, with a marginal commentary,
f. 7 a,



The translation and commentary are identical with those in
Zotenberg's Catal., no. 248, 6. A note on f. 25 a states that
this is believed to be the translation of Probus,

Compare Wright's Cato/., p. 1160, no. dcccclxxxviii, no. 2
(Add. 14,660). A note at the end, f. 41 a, states that this
treatise was compiled by the author in the month of Heziran
A. Gr. 949 = A.D. 638, in which year the emperor of Byzantium
(Heraclius I.) came to Amid and thence went down to Babel
(Baghdad). This of course refers to the final struggle between
the Greeks and Arabs for the possession of Syria.

The scribe, a priest named Anastasius, wrote it in the
church of the Virgin Mary at Amid.

At the end, f. 52 6, the scribe again gives his name, and
says that he finished this manuscript in a year of the Greek era
which appears to have been T I ♦ a (= a.d. 1797), but which has
been altered so as to read I I ♦ . (of the Muhammadan era
= a.d. 1689?).

On f. 6 a we find the following pieces :

a. An extract from Basil's discourse on the Study of the
Writings of the (Greek) Philosophers (ad Adolescentes), against
those who despise the study of philosophy,
