The Original New Testament

Agathon, the hegumen of the Dionysiou Monastery, and the hieromonk Leontios, has asked the Synaxis at Karyes to sell the Monastery the kellion of Paisios, for use as a lodging for visiting monks, as well as a vineyard and two orchards. The assembly approves, and agrees to sell the property for the sum of three hundred aspers. The Monastery assumes the customary labour obligations towards the Protaton, plus an annual contribution of one litre of wax.
