Provenance and Acquisition

'Λανρεντίου τοῦ Λανρεντίου ἔστι τò βίβλíου' (16th century?): Lorenzo Loredan (?). See MS. D'Orville 2. The inscription is not in Loredan's hand and was probably added by a later owner but Vendruscolo regarded Loredan's ownership as likely (F. Vendruscolo, 'Lorenzo Loredan 'copista' e possessore di codici greci', Italia Medioevale e Umanistica 38 (1995), 337-63 at 355-6).

Gaisford says, 'Codex valde mutilus, et potius Epitome quam exemplar perfecti operis. Emtus est [a] D'Orvillio cum alio Lexico Gr. (forte Etym. M. ... [MS. D'Orville 2]) circa an. 1730.'

Jacques Phillippe D'Orville of Amsterdam (1690–1751)
