Palaeographical information Written by a different hand in the lower margin.
Contextual information The epigram functions as a marginal scholium to a passage of the biographical legend of Chrysostom, according to which Paul was whispering into his ear the exegesis of his epistles (Demoen, Ricceri & Tomadaki (2021: 124-125)).
Metre(s) Dodecasyllable

Comment Note the pun on the name of the praised author.

According to Demus (1960: 111) the idea that 'St. John Chrysostom inherited the gift of words from St. Paul who had it from Christ' is a typical motive; cf. 'Ἰδοὺ λαλοῦσιν ὡς διηρμηνευκότες'.
