The Practica (i.e., Breviarium medicinae) of Serapion the Elder has been erroneously attributed to Serapion the Younger on leaf a2 recto.
The Breviarium medicinae was translated from the Arabic by Gherardo da Cremona; the Liber aggregatus in medicinis simplicibus of Serapion the Younger was translated from the Arabic by Simon Genuensis and Shem Tov ben Abraham Ibn Gaon.
