Description:
Manuscript fragment on one leaf of parchment of Homer, Ilias, 24.493-536 (lines 501-02 are nearly illegible); T. W. Allen, ed., Homeri Ilias (Oxford, 1931) v. 3, pp. 356-58. MS 478 may be another leaf from the same manuscript as the single folio included in T. W. Allen's text under the siglum Bm^^1 (British Library, Egerton 267, f. 19) which contains Book 22.193-236 of the Iliad. The size, format, date, and style of writing are very similar; both fragments show signs of having been used in a binding. Written by one hand in Greek minuscule, using brown ink; some accent marks added later in black.
1-line initial in red.
Discoloration, rubbing and punctures across lines 9-11, effacing some of the text; was once used as a binding reinforcement.
Cataloged from microfilm by Albert Derolez.
