Palaganos son of the komes Pelegrinos (13th c.) - VGH: 374.B
Palaeographical information Initial written in red ink and decorated with blue ink.
Written in the margin of the page is the date '6709' (1200/1201). However, some scholars argue that the two epigrams were most likely copied, along with the main text, from an earlier manuscript (dated to the early 13th century) - see Stevenson (1885: 24): 'subscriptio autem videtur ex archetypo transcripta'; see also Gallavotti (1980: 230-234). Jacob (1988: 185-203), on the other hand, presents a detailed paleographical analysis of the manuscript, on the basis of which he argues that the epigram was indeed written by Palaganos himself at the beginning of the thirteenth century.
Contextual information The epigram occurs at the end of the Odyssey. It is followed by a dodecasyllabic epigram written in red ink, inc. 'τυφλὸ(ς) γέρων ἔγραψε τ(οῖς) νέοις πάλ(αι)'.
