The letters are firmly formed and are nearly vertical with a slight slant to the right. There is a mixed use of uncials and cursives; in abbreviations, however, the scribe favors the use of the cursive form.;Decoration: Ornamental pemwork and painted headpieces and initials are found for each of the homilies represented.

    Description: Forms part of the Kenneth Willis Clark Collection of Greek Manuscripts (David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Duke University);Format: Manuscript codex.;Title supplied by cataloger.;Layout: Written in 1 column of 25-31 lines.;Script: The letters are generously spaced and each is formed with deliberation and there is a tendency to roundness, but not particularly beautifully formed, especially as seen in the looping characteristics of the ligatures.;Decoration: Throughout, in the upper and lower margins, the scribe has written in reddish bown ink references to other passages from which the text of the homilies have been taken, or to which the references in the text refer. Four small dots in a pinkish-red ink (different in many places from the ink that is used for the titles to the individual homilies), in a lozenge pattern, are used as signe des renvoies. The water damage, however, has obliterated most of corresponding signs in the margins. The ormamentation is simple: penwork in the ink of the text accented sometimes with red and black. Other ornamentation could include: guilloche pattern, buds filled with blackdots, cordiform scrolls, trefoil pattern.;Title cataloged from existing description.;Bound out of order; because of water damage to the spine, the leaves have been guarded together without regard to textual sequence. General contents: Homilia III, Ecologa de poenitentia; Homilia IV, Ecologa de jejunio et temperantia [PG 63, 595]; Homilia VII, Ecologa de humilitate animi [PG 63, 615-622]; Homilia VIII, Ecologa de anima [PG 63, 621-624]; Homilia IX, De non contemnenda Ecclesia Dei et sanctis mysteriis [PG 63, 623-632]; Homilia X, Ecologs de providentia [PG 63, 631-638]; Homilia XI, De Divitiis et Pauperiate [PG 63, 637-641]; Homilia XXIV, De peccato et confessione [PG 63, 731-743];Binding: Multiple undefinable signatures made up by the binder because of substanial water damage. Bound in board covered with dark brown paste paper. Blank endsheets, one each inside the upper and lower cover, added by the binder are the same paper as that found in Duke Greek MS 80.

    Description: Forms part of the Kenneth Willis Clark Collection of Greek Manuscripts (David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Duke University);Format: Manuscript codex.;Title supplied by cataloger.;Layout: Written in 2 columns of 25 lines.;Script: There are three identifiable hands: Scribe I: fol. 1-57v; Scribe II: fol. 58r-81v, 83r-160; and Scribe III: fol. 82r-v. In letter formation, Scribes I and II share many of the same characteristics of the period both in the combination of uncials and minuscules and in the formation of ligatures. They are noticeably different, however, from Scribe III. Scribe III writes a kind of sprawling, open hand executed with a very fine nib.;Decoration: For each of the contents there is a fine headpiece utilizing reds, blues, greens, all of which become modified by the use of white producing a range of subtle changes in the colors from the strong pure color to delicate blues, greens and pinks. There are thirteen headpieces of varying patterns and delicate initial letters for each of the sections which have retained their incipits. At fol. 5r the bar headpiece, which extends across the width of the column (11 x 74 mm) is filled with a running pattern of four vesical shaped forms, joined at the pointed ends, filled with tri-lobed red florets on double sepaled base in green, the stem rising from each vesica.;Title cataloged from existing description.;St. John Chrysostom's homilies to the people of Antioch and Instructions to the Catechumens. The contents are incomplete: all homilies before fol. 5 and a portion of fol. 6 are missing at the beginning; one leaf after fol. 18, one gathering after the fourth, and one leaf at the end are wanting.

    Description: Forms part of the Kenneth Willis Clark Collection of Greek Manuscripts (David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Duke University);Format: Manuscript leaves.;Titles from opening rubrics.;Layout: Written in 2 columns of 33 lines; 33 lines ruled with a dry point on the hair side across the full width of the leaf; pricking marks are not visible.;Script: Written in a very regular roundish, smooth flowing hand, letters mostly connected, except where an omicron appears in either the medial or initial position; pendant in brown ink with a rather wide reed pen. The letters slant slightly in the direction of the line of writing with no spacing between words. There are very few uncial letters and none are enlarged abnormally.;Decoration: On fol. 1v at the point in the text to which the reference is made is an outlined penwork initial "A" in red ink with knotted stems and leaf arm in the middle margin. On fol. 2r where Homily 40 on Genesis commences is an ornamental penwork band in red ink, with the width of the column (15 x 75 mm) consisting of running leafy acanthus scrollwork which forms within the running patterns three palmettes shapes, all within double ruled frame with corner trefoil finials. The initial letter phi in red is formed of a compass drawn circle (20 mm in diameter) the inner side with running acanthus leaf pattern, resting on a cone-shaped pedestal supporting the central stem of the letter which had foliate bands, topped by a slender two-part folial finial anchored to the lower by a bud the pointed end of which emerges opposite the end of the stem of the phi inside the top of the circle.;Title cataloged from existing description.;Two leaves with fragmentary portion of at least Homilies 39 (Patrologia Graeca 53, 359) and 40 (PG 53.568) on Genesis; originally used as binding for a book containing Demosthenes in Greek, the name preserved in the space covering the spine.
