Abstract: In this paper, we investigate $*$-polynomial identities of minimal degree for the algebra of $n\times n$ matrices over a field, where $n<5$ and $*$ is the transpose involution. We first present some basic generators, and then proceed to show that all other minimal degree identities can be derived from those.
