Genre(s)
Comment The first verse counts ten syllables instead of the expected twelve.

Nelson (1991: 25) links the two verses together, arguing that this composition was typical for Hagiopetrites: 'Once Theodore invented or borrowed a phrase, he too continued to use it for years. For example, the following two lines in Vat. gr. 644 of 1279/80 reappear in the Williams College New Testament of 1294/95 and in Meteora 545 of 1296/97'.
