Manuscript on parchment of 1) Theodulus (10th century?), Ecloga. With an unidentified commentary. 2) Avianus, Fabulae. Without the Prologue Ad Theodosium, with interlinear and marginal glosses. 3) Maximianus (6th century), Elegiae. With a few interlinear glosses. The final verses (VI.4-12) are lost. Low quality parchment, the first and last folios badly damaged and defective, making reading hard or impossible. The outer margin of ff. 16, 24 and 25 cut off. The text is probably written by a single scribe in a rather irregular Gothica Textualis Libraria, the marginal and interlinear commentaries in Gothica Cursiva Antiquior Currens (Anglicana).
Thomas Phillipps, MS 31979 according to a note on the front pastedown and a label on the spine (and the description in the Sotheby catalogue), but this number does not occur in the Phillipps catalogue.

Red plain initials and heightening of majuscules.
Binding: Nineteenth-century. Parchment over cardboard, far too large for the manuscript. The cover is an 18th-century (?) English document, the text turned inside.
