Dd. XIII. 2.
A large folio, on vellum, beautifully and distinctly written
before the middle of the fifteenth century, in a large bold hand,
mostly in good preservation, except where the illuminations, and
even whole leaves (as fols. 208, 209), have been cut out. It con-
tains (besides two blank leaves at the beginning) 309 leaves,
paged, but the pagination is incorrect, fol. 45 being followed by
fol. 50, where however nothing has been cut out : each page is
in double column, each column containing 47 lines. The larger
initial letters are variously coloured and flourished: but the illu-
minations prefixed to each treatise are cut out, with few excep-
tions. A leaf or more at the beginning is wanting : the words on
the first page are partly obliterated: but it opens with several short
epitaphs on Cicero, consisting of 68 lines, beginning with a pen-
tameter :

Nil agis, Antoni : scripta diserta manent.
Vulnere nempe uno Ciceronem conficis : at te

Tullius æternis vulneribus lacerat.
The last two lines are

Qui sexaginta completis et tribus annis

Servitio oppressam destituit patriam.
These lines on Cicero's tomb are by the Duodecim Poetæ Scholastici of
Paris (circa A.D. 1200): they are published by Meyer, Anthol. Lat. Tom. 1.
pp. 164–166.

The MS. supplies the titles of the works of Cicero which it contains.
1. M. T. Ciceronis de Senectute ad Atticum, fol. 1.
It is here divided into two books.
2. Ejusdem de Natura Deorum, libb. iii, fol. 9 b.
3. Ejusdem de Divinatione, libb. ii. fol. 52.
4. Ejusdem de Fato, fol. 81 6.
