Manuscript Summary
A small-format compendium of ten different medical texts, produced shortly after 800 in an unknown scriptorium, probably in Italy. The contents also include a treatise by the Greek physician Anthimus in the form of a letter to the Ostrogoth king Theoderich "On the diet" (De observatione ciborum), through which we gain insight to the nutritional habits of one Germanic people.
