Comment In at least one occurrence (MS München gr. 157) the epigram is written after Heliodorus's Aethiopica, in a colophon dedicated to Chariclea, attributed to Theodorus Prodromus by Colonna (1938: 371) or to Nicetas Eugenianus according to Bianchi (2010: 13-24; 2011: 57-59). However, the poem can also be found in at least two other manuscripts (both copied by Ioannes Rhosos at the end of the 15th c.), functioning in other contexts.
Number of verses 6
