Didactic poem in 284 lines of hexameter concerning integers (including, for the first time in Latin, zero) and their operations. Followed by an anonymous treatise in verse on the calendar, focusing on establishing feast and fast days, including discussion of solar and lunar movement. Later astronomical notes on star clusters added at the end of the manuscript (f. 14v).
