Comment The transcription of this occurrence is currently based on the folio image reproduced in Fonkič (1974: 137, plate 1). The epigram provided in Zorzi (2019: 270) is accompanied by critical notes based on a personal inspection of a microfilm (see footnote 72), with the following notable variations: 1 δέλτον ] δελτὸν Zorzi 'cod. ut uidetur'; σοφ(οῖς) ] σοφοῦ Zorzi.

Fonkič (1974: 134-135) attributes this inscription to Theodora Raoulaina. Zorzi (2019: 261-273) argues against this attribution, providing a comprehensive comparative analysis of the epigrams in Mosq. GIM Mus. Sobr. 3649 and Vat. gr. 1899.
