Leaf from a 15th-century copy of Paulus Aegineta's Epitomae medicae libri septem, with text from Book 1, Chapters 19-22. Paulus composed his compilation in the seventh century and drew Chapters 20-21 from the Synopsis ad Eustathium (Book 5, Chapters 15-16), written by Oribasius in the fourth century. The material before Chapter 20 and after Chapter 21 on this leaf matches Paulus more closely than Oribasius. The leaf is numbered 8 in ink, upper right recto.
