There is preserved in the Rare Book Department of the Library of Congress in Washington a sheet of parchment comprising two folia of a medieval manuscript, each covered on both sides with Greek text in uncial script. Seymour de Ricci, in his Census of Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts in the United States and Canada (N. Y. 1935, I, 211), lists this unique and precious fragment and describes it as follows:
‘Library of Congress, ms. no. 60: Sermons, in Greek. Vel. (VIIIth c.), 2 ff. only (27 × 20 cm.), the 2 outer of a quire, 36 lines to a page, written in sloping uncials….
Obtained in 1929 … from Casella of Naples (Ms. Ac. 4189, 10, nn. 1–6); certainly of South-Italian origin.’
The catalogue does not undertake to identify the author of the text.
