Palaeographical information De Montfaucon (1715: 306): 'Fol. 1. repraesentantur scala ad coelum pertingens, cujus gradus interferuntur hi Iambi'.

Devreesse (1945: 240-241): 'L'ouvrage est précédé (f. 1) d'une κλῖμαξ peinte en diagonale, sur les échelons de laquelle se lisent plusieurs versets (...) Titres, initiales, renvois, échelles des ff. 1 et 150v en rouge'.

Martin (1954: 172): 'The lower portion of the title page is torn away. The ladder terminates at the upper right in a hand (?) grasping a two-armed cross, with the inscription ἰ(ησοῦ)ς χ(ριστὸ)ς νικᾶ. The verses are written between the rungs. Above and below the ladder is the title: κλίμαξ θείας ἀνόδου (the last two words in fragmentary form owing to the tearing of the page). The codex is dated by Bordier in the eleventh century, and, with greater probability, by Devreesse and Omont in the twelfth'.
