Comment Date: later years of reign Michael Doukas (1071-1078), and/or (depending on interpretation) reign of Nikephoros Botaneiates (1078-1081). Paul (2012: 94): "As Spatharakis has shown convincingly, the manuscript was first intended to be dedicated to Michael VII (1071-1078), but after his death it was given to Nikephoros Botaneiates (1078-1081) instead."
