Ἡ βίβλος αὕτη πέφυκε τῆς παντουργοῦ Τριάδος
τῆς ἐν τῇ νήσῳ Χάλκης τε μονῆς τε τοῦ Ἐσόπτρου.
Καὶ εἴ τις βουληθῇ ποτὲ ταύτην ἀποστερῆσαι,
κεχωρισμένος ἔσεται τριάδος τῆς ἁγίας
ἐν τῷ αἰῶνι τούτῳ γε καὶ τῷ ἐλευσομένῳ.

Comment Note of possession, which occurs in the manuscripts of the Holy Trinity monastery (Chalki island), re-founded by the patriarch Metrophanes III of Constantinople in the 16th century. The epigram is preserved in 62 manuscripts. A variant, in which the third verse is modified ("καὶ εἴ τις βουληθῇ ποτὲ λαθραίως ταύτην ἅραι"), can be found in 15 manuscripts (cf. Cassin (2020: 25-26; 36-41)).

The epigram is sometimes followed by another epigram dedicated to the patriach Metrophanes III: 'Οἱ πατέρες μέμνησθε τοῦ Μητροφάνους.' Cassin (2020: 26): "Le nom de Métrophane est remplacé de façon ponctuelle par d’autres noms (Euthyme, Solomon, Syméon), dont certains furent sans doute des higoumènes du monastère."
