|Palaeographical information||According to Grünbart (2007: 104-106) the scribe copied the verses in the wrong order. They should be read as follows: 1, 2, 4-8, 3, 9-12.
v. 5: the scribe wrote α, γ and β above the words χ(ριστὸ)ς ἔρχεται ἄνωθεν, in order to indicate that the correct word order is Χριστὸς ἄνωθεν ἔρχεται.
|Subject(s)||John (evangelist, saint) (1st c.)|
|Comment||The poem was originally meant to be written on an icon (Grünbart 2007: 104).
Although the content makes it a potential book epigram, it is not used as such in this particular case.
|Number of verses||12|
