Manuscript 4 (folios 114-123) is a copy of the Physiologus (B version), beginning "Incipit phisialogus liber bestiarum siue uolucrum siue uermium ... Filium suum Iudam dicebat catulus leonis Iuda filius meus phisialogus dicit tres naturas habere leonem"; ending "...in operibus bonis perseuerauerint transit gehannam ignis ardentis et non tangit eum flamma".
