Comment Parpulov (2017: 97, note 23): 'The margin of f. 149r in Vatop. 162 preserves the following versified exchange between Pamphilus and Zigabenus, who evidently knew each other in person'.

According to Parpulov, the title and the verse are 'written in a hand and ink that are different from Pamphilus', and may be an autograph of Zigabenus'.
