The ancient note, which followed this colophon, was carefully erased, and over it there was written another, stating that the volume belonged to the convent of S.

THEOLOGY.

The torn leaf fol, 2 seems to contain fragments of a hymn, of later date. [Add. 14,573.]

DXLI. Three vellum leaves, about 13^ in. by 10, all slightly stained and torn (Add. 14,635, foil. 16—18). There are three columns, of from 38 to 42 lines, in each page. The writing is a good, regular Estrangela of the vith cent., the probable date being A.D. 555. If fol. 18 really belongs to the same manuscript as foil. 16 and 17, these leaves are all that are left of a large volume, which contained— Metrical discourses of Ephraim, 330 in number. 1.

A subsequent note, of later date, has been erased, with the exception of the words »cnaAv.r*' pdaca rdssbyA.; and an Arabic note on fol. 1 a has suffered the same fate. On the margins of this manuscript, as on those of the preceding, there are written a considerable number of notes, and words in Greek characters. This seems to be the third codex mentioned by Assemani in the Bibl. Orient., t. iii., pars, i., p. 23; though, if such be the case, his description of it is rather inaccurate. [Add. 14,549.]

Or., t. ii., p. 307; t. iii., pars i., p. 23, note) ; and it is probable that our commentator is the almost equally celebrated George, bishop of the Arabs, who was consecrated at the express desire of Athanasius (Assemani, Bibl. Or., t. ii., p. 335, no. 10). This guess receives some support from the fact of the name being written on the margin of fol. 132 b, opposite another passage in which the commentator speaks in the first person: iwir^ oaV».i rdA^cu» n^Au»-*-» vi^K' . v\ita*1 Ai ^alcn }O.TO COOUOK' ¿\ol.i [Add. 14,725, foil. 100—215.]
