A treatise on rhetorical theory written for C. Trebatius Testa in 44 B.C. Cicero's work is based on the work of the same name by Aristotle. Several pages (f. 3r-5v) of annotations have been added, which come from Boethius's In Ciceronis topica. The treatise is prefaced in this codex by a letter to Trebatius (which can be found in the collection of Cicero's letters as Ad familiares 7.19) explaining Cicero's reasons for writing and instructions for reading.
