The exemplar, which was most likely a copy of Marcianus Gr. VI.10, was written in two columns which needed to be read transversely and not column by column, see the facsimile of Marcianus Gr. VI.10 in Jan (1895) .. The scribe of the exemplar had failed to recognize this and consequently mixed up the order of the verses, cf. Jan (1890) pp. 683–684..
On pp. 58:11–58:16 we have the rubric Εἰς Μοῦσαν ἴαμβος and the Hymn to the Muse, lines 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 (with notation). Then follows, on pp. 59:1–59:13, the rubric Ὕμνος εἰς Ἥλιον (the astrological sign of the sun is written instead of Ἥλιον) and the Hymn to the Sun, lines 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, and 24 (without notation), with the marginal note: γένος διπλάσιον ὁ ῥυθμὸς δωδεκάσημος.
On pp. 59:14–60:15, preceded with the rubric Ὕμνος, are the following verses: Hymn to Nemesis, lines 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, and 15 (without notation); Hymn to the Muse, lines 2 and 4 (with notation), with a scribal annotation in the margin: ἰάμβ(ος) βακχεῖος; Hymn to the Muse, lines 6 and 8 (with notation), with a scribal annotation in the margin: συζυγία κατ’ ἀντίθεσιν; Hymn to the Sun, lines 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, and 25 (lines 7, 9, and 11 with notation).
Then follows, on pp. 60:16–61:5, the rubric Νεμέσεως (this actually belongs to Ὕμνος in Marcianus Gr. VI.10) and the Hymn to Nemesis, lines 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16–20 (without notation). Lines 17–20 have not been mixed up since they are written in one column on the next leaf in Marcianus Gr. VI.10. The notation and marginal notes are identical with the ones in Marcianus Gr. VI.10.
On p. 61 the scribe has added a quote from the Aldine edition (?) of Athenaeus Naucratites, Deipnosophistae 14.623e (Eupolis, fr. 366): καὶ μουσικὴ πρᾶγμ’ ἐστὶ βαθύ τι καὶ καμπύλον· ἀεί τε καινὸν ἐξευρίσκει τι τοῖς ἐπινοεῖν δυναμένοις.
Argentorati gr. C.III.31 was destroyed in a a fire in 1870. Argentorati gr. C.III.31 is not the protograph according to Rosengren (1888) p. 22.
Not examined by the editor.

Pagination in black ink, probably by the scribe: 1–719. Additional foliation by modern hand: 46a (loose leaf), 68a, 84a-b (fold-outs), 142a-b (loose leaves). 309–310 are omitted in the old pagination but have been added in pencil by a modern hand which has also corrected 311–385 to 313–387. After 385 the old pagination jumps to 388. 714–715 are omitted in the old pagination but have been added in pencil by modern hand. 720–828 added in pencil by modern hand.

This manuscript was part of the Mieg collection which Johannes Schefferus had acquired from Wilhelm Sebastian Mieg (1617–1658), cf. Schück (1915) p. 34., ‘Mox ipse suo aere Studiosus adhuc comparauit sibi Miigianam, quam possederat Sebastianus Miigius, Nobilis et tredecimuir Argentoratensis, vir Graece Latineque doctissimus, filioque ejusdem nominis reliquerat. Habuit ea codices bis mille circiter diuersi generis Theologos, Jurisconsultos, Medicos, Mathematicos, Philosophos, Historicos et alios; Manuscriptos quoque aliquot non contemnendos. E quibus omnibus nongentos admodum secum abstulit Vpsaliam propter sumptuum in eos auehendos faciendorum magnitudinem, caeteros vel vendidit Argentorati, vel Boeclero donauit.’.
