Translation: "This divine and sacred tetraevangelion was completed through collaboration and because of desire and expense of the noble and honored man, kyr Nikolaos of Lardea. [This book] was copied by me, [most] worthless and flawed among all good people, a villager, scribe Theodoros Kotzas from the region of Methoni. [The book] was finished in the year 6938 from the Creation of the World, in the eighth indiction; from the year of the Incarnation [of Christ], [in the year] 1430. Glory to God forever. Amen."
