This investigation into von Soden's Ib\(^2\) Group is divided into four sections, of which sections III & IV contain the nucleus of the work. The other sections only have any value when applied to these two sections and are self-explanatory. Section III, with the general and individual descriptions of the MSS involved, is an attempt to bring together in one place all the known details about the history, the format, the scribe, the script and any other relevant material. This is not new knowledge but a culling of formerly scattered information. Its value is in helping to give as clear a picture of what the manuscripts are without actually reproducing them. In the course of the descriptions it has proved possible to suggest some answers to former riddles, as with clarifying where the text of 440 changes, and even to provide proof of former hypotheses.
