Abstract: Let L be a central simple Lie algebra of type $ B{C_1}$ with highest root space of dimension greater than one over a field of characteristic zero. It is shown that either L is isomorphic to the simple Lie algebra associated with a skew hermitian form of index one or L can be constructed from the tensor product of two composition algebras. This result is obtained by completing the description (begun in [3]) of the corresponding class of ternary algebras.
