End of a medical treatise regarding different kinds of food and drinks, their tastes and their influences on the body depending on the time and the amount. Studying this book is said to free one from the long-windedness of ‘quacksalvers’. According to the colophon (P2 f. 1v), the copy was prepared in Alexandria and the scribe wrote it for himself. The name of the scribe is deleted and the name of a new owner, Avraham b. Saʿadya, is added below the colophon. (Information from CUDL.)
