Manuscript on paper (rough, brown; trimmed; no watermarks) of the Life of Josephus, which was perhaps an appendage to his Antiquitates. This codex appears to be one of the earliest surviving authorities for the autobiography of Josephus.
Binding: 17th-18th centuries (?). Rebound in brick-red leather, blind-tooled with a rope interlace with small dots in the border and a floreate cross in the center.
Crude headpiece on f. 1r, with title and small initials in red.
Script: Written by a single scribe in well-spaced minuscule; a second scribe added four lines on f. 32v, partly damaged and undeciphered.
The upper and lower portions of the manuscript are waterstained. Most folios have been repaired; the final leaf is badly mutilated with much damage to the text.
