The James Catalogue was digitized then marked up following the TEI P5 Guidelines. The customized model was provided by Giuliano Di Bacco, stored in an ODD file (parkerweb.xml): the latter was written by GDB using ROMA vers. 2.x, with manual adaptations. The ODD file is used as a source to compile the actual schema used to validate the xml: it is advisable to compile it in RelaxNG sintax (parkerweb.rnc) through ROMA.

Macrobius, Saturnalia, Commentary on Cicero's Somnium Scipionis. Apuleius, De Platone, De deo Socratis(Content authored by Corpus Christi College)
Macrobius. Apuleius
Codicology:Vellum, 288 x 197 mm(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) (11.4 x 8 in.), ff. 151 + 1, 38 lines to a page. Cent. xii, in a very beautiful round minuscule. I think two scribes may be distinguished: but this is not certain. The ink changes about f. 62v. Few titles or rubrics have been inserted.
Collation: a1 18-198 (wants 8).
2 fo.: urget atque implicat.
Additions:On the verso of the flyleaf (f. iv)(Content authored by Corpus Christi College) (recto is blank) is (xv) “prec. xxs” , and an old list of contents, handsomely written (xii):
Machrobius de saturnalibus
Sompnium scipionis
Machrobius super sompnium scipionis
Apuleius de deo socratis” .
There has been an inscription below, but it is hopelessly gone.
A Parkerian scribe has written: “Hic liber scriptus Macrobii ut aliquot alii scripti possunt in hunc usum seruari ut conferas librum impressurn cum scripto” . Then follows a full table of contents in red ink signed A. S. H. 13 November 1711.
Greek passages are not successfully written
Research:The text of Macrobius was seen by Gronovius but not by Lud. Janus nor Eyssenhardt. The MS. was consulted in 1880 by Dr L tjohann
