Description of the MSS.

or different authors, for in the case of these isolated additions it is difficult to decide as to the hand. I have consequently examined them again:

“Certainly C are: 15b 11 buaid lię, 33a 24 genus doloris, 49a 2 lothor, 54a 12 iouis, 57b 5 sabinus, 62b 10 ligo .i. bacc buana fínime, 63a 12 .i. mocoll lín, 67b 14 soror uiri, 69b 10 .i. obedientia, 144b 2 .i. hastas colligo and ꝉ quero ꝉ populo alloquor, 145a 5, 6 .i. nutrio (but the marginal arbiathim may be from the usual hand).

“Probably C: 46b 13 ingen, 50b 21 .i. féle, 63b 17 bestia.

“The following shew lighter ink than C has elsewhere: 46a 2 ꝉ bóc, 46a 3 ꝉ, 53a 15 tened, 92a 4 uestimentum.

“Doubtful if C: 46b 13 rite (may be from the writer of the Latin text), 49a 3 and 7 .i. derg.

“A different ductus probably appears in 52b 9 cís rigda, 53a 13 .i. cliab noiden (in rasura).

“Certainly not C: 105b 1 7 capus sebocc, 106a 3 ꝉ soror, 106b 10 uersio (the writing of these glosses reminds one of that of the writer of the Latin text).

“Likewise not C: 143b 2, 146b 14 ꝉ foalgim.”

The codex also contains a number of marginalia[1] in Irish and Latin, in various hands; some of them are in the Ogham character.[2]
