Summary expansion
Text is arranged in 368 short numbered chapters, without caption titles; captions are instead listed in the table of contents at end, following editorial note "Errori." Marginal illustrations include geometric diagrams, and line drawings of human figures, a horse, and buildings. The presence of the sketch of a horse in chapter 263 confirms that Belt 35 could not have been copied from Codex Barberinus which lacks the horse drawing; see Pedretti, Belt 35...., page 151
