The Original New Testament

The Voivode Matthew Basarab confirms the ownership by Koutloumousiou Monastery of the villages dedicated to it by previous princes, and also restores their old boundaries, which have from time to time been encroached upon by the owners of neighbouring lands. These are the villages of Tsiresov, Calugareni, Maracina, Daneshti, Laiov, Comanca, Giurgiu, Prislop, and Hrateshti, and the old settlements of Sura, Saca, Ciora, Suhaia, and all the old settlements around the marshlands of Calmatzui, together with all the marshes and streams of the region. The monastery was repaired by the Princes of Wallachia, Mirtchea and Vladislav, the latter having sent officials to determine the boundaries of all their lands, which Matthew subsequently confirmed.
