|Translation(s)||The discovery [i.e. of the cross] was given to Helen from God.|
|Comment||The verse is shown written in a four-arm cross form. The verse is read from the centre of the cross. There is some debate about the order of the verses; the arguments of Follieri1979 are convincing, though. In the cod. Abbat. 431, it follows after a writing about the finding of the cross by Saint Helen. In the other codices, it just seems to fulfil a devotional intention.
