The manuscript is the work of two scribes (except for the colophons, inscriptions and prefatory material before the Gospel of Matthew, which were done later). The principal scribe wrote the entire text of the four gospels in bolorgir (cursive) script; he also wrote the prefaces and indexes that stand before each gospel. The other scribe wrote the numbers within the Canon Tables, as well as the text of the Eusebian Introduction and the Eusebian numbers throughout the manuscript. (Sanjian, p. 46)
