Comment D'Aiuto (2003: 243) interpretes "κηρύκου" as the first name of the scribe Kerykos, who in his opinion also copied the Greek epigram preceding this verse. Schulthess (2018: 190-191 and 2018: 78-79), however, considers it to be a (self-)designation, together with "διακόνου", of the scribe Gabriel, who is mentioned in the Greek epigram preceding this verse.
