The epigram is not written by one of the main scribes, but by another, contemporary hand. Cf. D'Aiuto (2016: 83): "appartiene con ogni verosimiglianza alla mano di un rubricatore e/o ornatista professionista, un chrysographos".
Contextual information The epigram consists of four well-known poems, which are here presented as one long epigram: vv. 1-5 (type 5237), vv. 6-11 (type 4568), vv. 12-15 (type 3628) and vv. 16-22 (type 3878).
