Public Notes
The second volume of ms. Or. 2926, and written in the same hand. It starts with the reign of Luhrasp and continues to the death of Yazdagird, but is missing the last two sections and the epilogue.

As noted by Rieu, Supplement, pp. 131-2, this volume also contains some interpolations, namely:

1. Part of the Azarbarzinnama, ff. 59v - 62r.

2. Bahmannama, ff. 62r - 133r.

The ms. contains several spaces left blank for paintings; most of the nine that have been executed illustrate scenes from the Bahmannama.
