Comment The date which follows the epigrams contains one numeral which has become illegible: 'ετ(ους) ,ϛω(?) | ιν(δικτιῶνο)ς ε''. According to Bees' autopsy of the manuscript, this missing numeral could either be λ, ξ or ϟ. Bees states that the dating cannot be entirely certain, but he proposes ,ϛωϟ' (6890 = 1381/2) as date. (1998 [1967]: 531, 675). Based on comparative (paleographical and content-) analysis with a collection of Viennese manuscripts, however, Hunger and Kresten (1980: 195-196) argue that the manuscript should be dated to ,ϛωλ' (6830 = 1321/2).
