Rubric (f. 226r): ‘Incipit summa in dan/dis medicinis’, incipit: ‘Tempora diei et noctis in quibus humores / habent’, explicit (f. 229r) ‘Et aqua / decoctionis fac emplastra et super pone. mul/tum maturat / Explicit’. The title ‘Summa in dandis medicinis’ added (f. 226r, upper margin) by the early 16th-century annotator (compiler?).

Followed (f. 229v) by short texts added by later hands, including: a) a five-line verse collection, incipit: ‘Non est in mundo dives qui dicit abundo’, explicit: ‘Ypocras est testis quoniam sequitur mala pestis’, in red ink; b) a prayer to the Virgin; c) an astrological chart; d) notes by S. Knott.
