Selected speeches of Cicero as translated into German from the original Latin by Johann Christian Gottlieb Ernesti. The manuscript is believed to be in Ernesti's own hand, with many corrections that appear to be in the same hand. It is divided into 8 sections, each of which is subdivided into chapters. The materials covered in the 8 sections is as follows: 1. The 4 Catiline orations (In Catilinam), in chapters numbered 1-13, 1-13, 1-12, and 1-11, respectively; 2. Speech on behalf of Titus Annius Milo (Pro Milone), in chapters numbered 1-38; 3. Speech on behalf of Sextus Roscius of Ameria (Pro Sex. Roscio Ameriae), in chapters numbered 1-53; 4. Speech on behalf of the poet Aulus Licinius Archias (Pro Archia Poeta), in chapters numbered 1-12; 5. Speech in defense of the proposed Manilian law (Pro Lege Manilia), in chapters numbered 1-24; 6. Speech on behalf of Marcellus (Pro Marcello), in chapters numbered 1-11; 7. The orator (Ad M. Brutum Orator), in chapters numbered 21-71; and 8. Brutus, in chapters numbered 7-56. Section 8 begins, after a separate title page (f. 159r) and 3 blank leaves, with a paragraph that lacks a chapter heading, followed by the heading for chapter 7 (f. 163r); chapters 47-56 of this section have been renumbered in the margins as chapters 56-65, and the section ends abruptly with a heading for chapter 57 that is not followed by any text. A characteristic pen flourish underlining the last line of the text marks the end of all of the sections except for 8.
