Contextual information The epigram comments on Niketas Choniates' History 25.40-48.
Metre(s) Dodecasyllable
Genre(s) Text-related epigram
Comment Bértola (2021: 941): "The text from f. 12v (poem 23) continues on f. 29v (poem 24), then on f. 29r (poem 25), and returns to f. 13r. The folio is not only misplaced but also inverted. The correct succession of the epigrams reveals that the copy of the epigrams was done before the interpolation of the folio. The folio is also very damaged and was repaired. Some words are therefore difficult to read".
