Codex Parisinus Graecus 456, designated by siglum H, manuscript of Origen's Philocalia and Contra Celsum.

Description[edit]

The manuscript contains text of Origen's Philocalia. It is very closely related to Codex Venetus Graecus 48, but not copied from it.[1]

It contains also Arrian's Expeditio Alexandri immediately after the Philocalia. It contains also some iambics of the monk Bessarion on the death of Theodora.

History[edit]

The manuscript was brought to Paris from Constantinople. Today it is housed at the Bibliothèque nationale de France (Gr. 456) in Paris.
