Comment The epigram also occurs in the 17th-century manuscript Vat. Urb. gr. 5 (f. 141r).

Both John Scottus Eriugena (9th c.) and John Sarrazin (12th c.) made a Latin translation of this book epigram; Robert Grosseteste (12th-13th c.) transliterated the epigram in Latin characters (cf. De Groot (2021: 343, 356, 362)). These translations and the transliteration accompany their respective translations of the Corpus Dionysiacum in several manuscripts.
