Abstract This first installment in a series of articles on Syriac manuscripts offers a concise description of two previously unknown manuscripts kept in two small collections in Iraq. Both manuscripts are exclusively of medical content and offer new copies of already known medical works, such as Questions on Medicine for Students by Ḥunain b. Isḥāq and the Syriac Book of Medicines. The two manuscripts are notable not only as new manuscript witnesses but also because they allow us to understand better the manuscript transmission of the texts they contain. Thus, they turn out to be the direct models of two manuscripts of the same content held in European collections (Mingana Syr. 594 and BNF Syr. 425–425).
