It is however wholly different from the Kitah al-Majdal of 'Amr ibn Matta at-
Tirhani, judging at least by our copy of the second volume of that work described
below. Compare Assemani, B.O. iii. 1, 582 sqq. ; G. E. Khayyath, Syri Orien-
tates etc., p. 106; Hoffmann, Ausziige, p. 6; Sachau, Kurzes Verzeickniss d.
Sachau'schen Savimlung, no. 12. Consequently there remains nothing to Marl
ibn Sulaiman but the history of the Nestorian Patriarchs incorporated in the
Kitdb al-Majdal; see Assemani, B.O. iii. 1, 554 — 5.
