Comment As represented in Laur. Plut. 32, Cod. 1 (f. 654v), the epigram is followed by a Latin translation: 'Eloquio pollens gazes et amore philelfo hunc mihi francisco theodorus scripsit homerum'.

The authorship of this poem is debated. According to some researchers, the poem might well be attributed to Franciscus Philelphus, based on palaeographical grounds and the fact that the first person speaking in the epigram is Philelphus (cf. Pontani (1992: 116-117) and Speranzi (2012: 331, n. 26) with further literature).
