Comment Shailor (1984: 14): 'Text was written by a single scribe. A later hand, bold and ill-formed, supplied the table of contents (ff. iii verso-iv verso), minor marginal notations and the foliation in the upper right corner (for ff. 1-60). Tinted drawing of Oppian writing his poem while contemplating fish in a nearby stream occurs on f. 1v (...) Written in southern Italy, probably in the area of Otranto (according to A. Zumbo), at the end of the 15th century'.
