Comment Eustratiades (1924: 75): 'Ὁ Κῶδ. βασιλικός · ἐγράφη δὲ παρὰ τοῦ μοναχοῦ Χαρίτωνος, ὅστις φαίνεται ἦν γραφεὺς Ἀνδρονίκου τοῦ Παλαιολόγου τοῦ Δεσπότου Θεσσαλονίκης τοῦ ἐγκαταβιώσαντος ἐν τῇ μονῇ τοῦ Βατοπεδίου καὶ μετονομασθέντος Ἀκακίου'.

Cf. Lamberz (2008: 137) attributing the manuscript to an anonymous scribe rather than to Chariton, who is mentioned by Eustratiades: 'Der erste Band dieses Corpus (Vatop. 390; Abb. 9-10) wurde von einem weiteren Schreiber (E) kopiert'.

See also Lamberz (ibid. p. 146, n. 59). For further information on the miss-attribution of the scribe see Politis (1958: 264-265).
