|Contextual information||About the context, Ševčenko (1969-70: 189) says: "Each of these poems is placed in the manuscript's margin next to the text or the miniature relevant, or considered relevant, to the deceased".|
|Comment||About the metre, see Ševčenko (1969-70: 205): "Acrostic, consisting of politic verses and two kinds of refrains. The first is identical with the second half of a politic verse; the second is a Byzantine anacreontic".
This epigram is preceded by five and a half 'verses' of which the metrical status is questionable, so we have decided not to include them as part of the epigram. See Ševčenko (1969-70: 201, 203).
|Number of verses||65|
