This whole section is borrowed from the work of an older
writer, Mari ibn Sulaiman (alive in A. Gr. 1459 =A.D. 1147,

by Assemani are found in this copy at f. 151a and f. 156 6.
'Amr ibn Matta seems to have flourished about the middle of
the xivth cent.; see the passage cited by Assemani, B.O. ii.
424, col. 2, which I do not find however in this manuscript in
the chapter on Hauan-isho', fif. 101 a — 102 6.

Paper, about 13 in. by 8^; 219 leaves; quires, unsigned,
22 in number, of 12 and 8 leaves, except the 5th and the last,
which have 10 and 11 respectively; a small leaf has been
inserted after f. 39, and five leaves have been torn out after
f. 157; there are from 24 to 30 lines in a full page. The
writing is a fairly good Naskhi ; the paper a thinnish Euro-
pean, apparently of the xviiith cent.

The contents are nearly identical with those of Add. 3285,
viz. theological treatises of Musa ibn al-Hajar, or Moses bar
Kepha, and John, bishop of Dara, in an Arabic version.

1. On the Soul, by Moses bar Kepha, in 65 chapters, f. 1 h.

2. On the Resurrection of the Body, by the same, in
34 chapters, f. 63 «.

3. On the Creation of the Angels, by the same, in 54 chap-
ters, f. 106 a.

4. On the Celestial Hierarchy, by the same in 16 chapters,

Dd. 3. 81

Coarse paper, about 12 in. by 8^ ; 144 leaves of which
ff. 1, 2, 81, 141—144 are blank (there is no f. 89); quires of
10 leaves, signed with Syriac letters.

The original voUune contains the Ecclesiastical History of
Barhebraeus (pts. ii. and ill.), written in a neat, regular, Jacobite
hand, unpointed, 2 columns of about 37 lines ; probably of the
xivth cent. Between parts il. and in. are bound up 9 leaves
containing other matter.

Ends f. 70 b. The supplement, ff. 71 a— 78 a, is by a later
hand and agrees with the edition of Abbeloos and Lamy (who
appear to have collated this MS.), t. ii. pp. 781 — 845, 915—919.

Part III. begins f. 90 6. The supplement, ff. 132 6 — 140 a,
is a later supply, agreeing with op. cit. t. iii, pp. 487 — 563.

The original MS. comprises part ii., consisting of 7 quires
(the third and seventh have 8 leaves), numbered from ^2 to
»4^, and part ill., 4 quires (the first has only 9 leaves), numbered
from x» to ^Mr^- The later supplements are signed .^^ (bis)
and r^. There is an enumeration in Syriac letters extending
to kJ (f. 80) and thence from sCi2i (f. 90) to «n\n (f. 140 a),
and at an early date the pages were numbered (in ink). For
the lacuna between p. 154 [f. 80 6] and p. 189 [f. 81 a], see
below Dd. 3. 8-. There are, moreover, two enumerations in
pencil : one on the top left-hand corner of each leaf, the other
in the centre at the top. The latter ignores the supplement
and additional matter, the former, therefore, has here been
followed throughout.

The MS. originally contained also part i, of the Ecclesiastical
History*, which is now in the Bodleian Library, Oxford (Hunt.
52, see Payne Smith, Cat. no. 167, col. 548 sq.).

II. The additional matter consists of: —

(1) A short account of the burning of the church of the
mother of God in Amid in A. Gr. 1618 = a.d. 1307 by - A^
ijAj.? oi;^ U-AlD? OCT ^j^ ; f. 78 a. See Ass. B.O. t. iii.

(2) The '7r\'r]po(f)opia of the patriarch Ni'ma or Ni'met-
Allah, Ignatius XVII. (see Ass. B.O., t. i. p. 536); ff. 78 6—80 a :

(3) On f. 80 6 are three paragraphs, each in a different
hand, giving a brief obituary of: (i) Mar Timothy, bishop of

Antioch, who died in A.D. 1592, (ii) Mar John ("jj-jJiD), bishop
of the church of Mar Abi in Tyre, who died A.D. 1578, and
(iii) Mar Ignatius, patriarch of Antioch, who died in A.D. 1639.
They were all buried in the convent of Mar Thomas in
Katrubbal.
