This epigram is nowdays lost and it is only readable thanks to Fraccaroli's (1897a: 334) transcription. It was likely to accompany a miniature of St. Matthew (Perria (1994: 98)).

Comment This ms. has three poems with the name Dionysios ('Λαμπτὴρ νοητὸς τῆς ὅλης ὑφʹ ἡλίῳ,'; 'Εὐαγγελιστὴς ἐκ τελώνου φωσφόρος'; 'Ψυχῶν ἀκέστωρ εὐσθενὴς καὶ σωμάτων'). Perria (1994: 98) suggests this Dionysios to be the sponsor of the ms. or someone to whom the ms. was dedicated; 'una figura di un certo rilievo'.
