Place in Manuscript f. 1r
Palaeographical information Written in red ink.
Contextual information The epigram accompanies a miniature depicting the patron of the manuscript, one of the Grand Komnenoi, as the title written above the miniature indicates: '+ ἐν χ(ριστ)ῶ τῶ θ(ε)ῶ πιστὸς βασιλεὺς καὶ αὐτοκράτ[ωρ] πάσης ἀνατ[ολῆς] καὶ π[ερατείας]'. Possibly this miniature faced a now missing portrait of Alexander the Great on f. 2, which may have been accompanied by an inscription in which he replies to the emperor (cf. Rhoby (2018: 357-359) and Trahoulia (2017: 175)).
