MS. Arm. f.3
Chronological, 17th cent.
This so-called Calendar (in Arm. Toumar, from the Greek Τομάριον), probably p;der than the 7th cent., consists simply of a collection of practical formulae for ascertaining some hemerological points and the days of moveable feasts according to the observance of the Armenian church. It forms the topic of the next article, and seems on that account to have been inserted by a later hand here at the beginning of the volume; although it differs somewhat in the order, and more in the contents of the formulae, from the text used by the commentator, which seems to be shorter.
The end is wanting.
The neginning and the end are missing.
The beginning is wanting.
Concerning the Twelve zodiacal signs. Begins: The univers has the shape of a body (read man), twelve limbs hat the body …. The lacuna after f. 163 can be supplied from the 14th article in no. 36 of this catalogue (MS .Marsh 85). The last chapter, entitles Աւուրք պահպանութեան, is omitted in the latter.
