Πολλὴ χάρις σοι, παντοποιὲ Χριστέ μου,
τῷ δόντι μοι κτήσασθαι τήνδε τὴν βίβλον
εἰς ἐξίλασμα τῶν ἐμῶν ἁμαρτάδων,
εἰς ἐργασίαν σῶν καλῶν προταγμάτων·
εἰ θέλετε, μέροπες, μαθεῖν ὁ ξύσας,
ἅπαντες οἱ δέρκοντες τὴν βίβλον ταύτην,
Γεώργιος κέκλημαι ἀλλὰ καὶ θύτης,
ὅστις τοῦ πίκλην ὁ Κοτύλης τυγχάνω·
διὰ συνδρομῆς καὶ ἐξόδου γεγόνη
τὸ παρὸν εὐαγγέλιον πόνῳ καὶ μόχθῳ·
πεπλήρωτο δὲ ἐν χρόνοις τοῖς τοῦ κόσμου,
χιλιὰς παρέδραμεν ἐξαπλουμένη
καὶ ἑκατοντὰς ἐννακοσιοστή τε
σαρακοστὴ πέμπτη τε, πᾶσι σὺν τούτοις,
καὶ ἰνδικτιώνης πέντε καὶ δεκάτης,
ἀπριλλίῳ μηνὶ εἰκοστὴ ὀγδόη.

Translation(s) Many thanks to thee, omnipotent Christ, for allowing me to obtain this book for the expiation of my sins [and] in the fulfllment of your beautiful commands. If you, readers of this book, wish to know who the scribe is, my name is Georgios, and I am a priest, and my surname is Kotylis. With provided support and expense, this Gospel book was completed through toil and hard work. [It was] finished in the year six thousand nine hundred forty-five from the Creation of the World [AM 6945, which is 1437 CE], in the fifeenth indiction, on the twenty-eighth of April.
