A Greek version of the Physiologus is on folio 2v-45v. It is illustrated with wash-colored line drawings.

The illustrations in this manuscript are very similar to those in another Greek Physiologus, Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana, MS gr. IV. 35, though the images in that manuscript are much better.
