Palaeographical information The epigram is placed at the very beginning of the manuscript.
Contextual information The text is followed by two more verses (Man. Phil. Poem 4, vv. 1-2), which read:
+ θ(εὸ)ς τὸ τεχθὲν ἡ τεκοῦσα παρθένος
σπορᾶς ἄνευ σΰλληψις ἄφθορος τόκος.

At the very top of the same folio there is another epigram, now hardly readable:
(...) λαλοῦσϊ τοὺς ἀποστόλους |
(...) φανέντας ἀντῒ τεττίγων |
(...) ἄγγελος κΰκνου τρόπον |
εὐαγγελικῆς μελουργίας.
This text comes from Man. Phil. Poem 232, vv. 36-39.
Metre(s) Dodecasyllable
Genre(s) Text-related epigram
Comment Papadopoulos-Kerameus (1899: 326) gives only the incipit of this poem, which was written by Manuel Philes (Poem 1).

The text of this record has been transcribed by Dr. Foteini Spingou.
As Krystina Kubina pointed out, the paratextual function of the epigram in this manuscript is debatable.
Number of verses 4
