In Byzantium, the 9th–11th c. was a crucial period concerning the preservation of many manuscripts we posses to this day. One of them is the Codex Vindobonensis Medicus graecus 4 from the Austrian National Library in Vienna, one of the oldest manuscripts of the Hippocratic tradition. The initial analysis of this manuscript shows the background of its use, its possible Byzantine readers and sheds light on its origin.A detailed description of the manuscript will require a deeper analysis of the script used, the textual composition, the notes and all corrections, emendations, scribal errors and the like. Such an analysis would lead to a better understanding of the Byzantine scribal culture in the 9th-11th c., including why, for whom and how they carried out their work.
