Psalter with Odes
ii, 148, i' ff.
130 × 95 mm
Foliation in pencil in the upper right margin: 1–148.
The quire structure of the codex has been seriously compromised by the heavy restauration of the inner margins. It appears composed on quaternions mainly, but the loss of individual leaves must be studied in detail.
The ms has been restored with paper supports. Some portions of the text are rubbed and some were overwritten.
ff. 1r–148v Calligraphic minuscule of round allure and quite large module with respect to the size of the ms; it adopts ‘ombelichi’ for epsilons and thetas, and has enlarged open round upsilons and omegas, as well as prominent kappas, rhos and phis. Brown ink.
Rubrication in paled carmine, with simple enlarged initials and wide dots as separators in the text.
Layoutff. 1r–148v Written area: 100 × 70/75 mm One text block with four vertical justifications and an additional vertical in the outer margin; the tracing of horizontals is not clearly visible and the text sometimes appears slanting and not following the outer justifications. Interlineum: 4 mm.
White parchment laced-case binding over paper board. Foredge cover extensions. Sewn on three supports. Laced-through endbands oversewn in brown and beige. Edges sprinkled red. Spine label in brown morocco with gilt lettering: Psalmi Davidis Graece.
