Subject(s) Mark (evangelist, saint) (1st c.)
Comment In two manuscripts, Athon. Vatop. 937 and Istanbul Skeuofulakion 3, the epigram accompanies a miniature of an eagle, in those cases considered as the symbol of Mark the Evangelist. Since the epigram specifically refers to an eagle (ἱπταμένην ἄνωθεν), there is no coherence between the epigram and the image of the lion. Besides, the same epigram is also used in other manuscripts with reference to John the Evangelist.
