Paper, about 8|in. by 6^; 352 leaves, of which the first
three are blank. The quires, of 8 and 10 leaves, are signed
with letters only as far as f 42 a (oi). The number of lines
varies from 23 to 31. This volume is written in an inelegant
Jacobite serta, and dated A. Gr. 2033 = A.D. 1722. It seems to
have been copied from a defective manuscript, as rubrics are
frequently wanting, and there are considerable lacunae marked,
for example, at ff. 103, 129 sqq., 144, 148, 149, 151, and 181.
It contains

An anonymous commentary, ascribed to a patriarch of
Alexandria, on the books of Genesis and Exodus in Arabic.

The text is divided into lessons, C7l|^. Jt seems to agree very
closely with the Paris MSS. Ancien fonds 7 and Supplement 6
(see De Slane's Catal., p. 5, nos. 18 and 21).
