Manuscript SummaryA much-used school manuscript containing the 15 books of the Metamorphoses by Publius Ovidius Naso with many interlinear and marginal glosses in Latin. The parchment shows signs of heavy use as well as dirt, and it is sewn in various places. Before the first pagination of the manuscript by the assistant librarian Ildefons von Arx around 1780, the text from Book 8, V. 564, to Book 10, V. 429, was missing, as noted on p. 62. At the end of the manuscript, there are pen trials, some of them of historical content, such as the mention of an earthquake on September 4, 1298 on p. 112 or the mention of a scribe by the name of Johannes (Qui me scribebat Iohannes nomen habebat).
