Expanded version of the commentary by Arnulf of Orleans on Lucan’s Pharsalia, Bk. 6.321-4091; see B. M. Marti, ed., Arnulfi Aurelianensis Glosule super Lucanum (American Academy in Rome 1958) 327-32.
Parchment, 1 leaf; 210 × 157 (180 × 140) mm., 2 columns of 48 lines, ruled in lead (?), pricking in the outer margin. Written in a minuscule script with the lemmata underscored in ink. On the recto, a circle labelled “tessalya” in the center, with the cardinal directions along the perimeter; outside the circle, 5 irregularly shaped projections with the names of the mountains surrounding Thessaly. Written in France in the early thirteenth century. Loose in HM 1345 when that book was acquired by Henry E. Huntington in 1926 from A. S. W. Rosenbach.
