Place in Manuscript f. 6v
Palaeographical information Written in majuscule, in the right column.
Lines 2 and 3 should be switched. The scribe possibly copied the epigram from an antigraph where the text was disposed in two columns (Acconcia Longo (1989: 76)).
Metre(s) Dodecasyllable
Genre(s) Scribe-related epigram
Comment The last verse counts 13 syllables, according to Acconcia Longo (1989: 76), but she gives a wrong version; Devreesse (1950: 440) gives the right one: 'ὧν εὐχαῖς, Χριστέ, σῶσόν με τὸν γράφεα', which would be metrically acceptable.
