That the MS. has passed through several hands appears
from the numerous marginal notes.

Notes in uncial Greek are found on ff. 12 b, 17 b, 24 a, 82 a,
48 6, 51 a, 55 a, 59 a, 62 b, 111 a, 138 a, 147 6, 158 6, 165 6, 169 a,

An earlier possessor has pasted in a note which refers briefly
to the identification of the first homily, and states " this appears
to be a correct copy and imperfect only at the beginning... it is
probably of considerable antiquity."

At the end is written in pencil £42, 0. 0. The title outside
is " Prophetae Syriace ms."

This MS. was formerly the property of John Skipp of
Ledbury (died 1796), whose book-plate it contains. It passed
