The Original New Testament

Scribe. The hieromonk Dositheos (of the Lavra?)

Other manuscripts by this scribe are: Vatopedi Cod. 1184 (A.D. 1445/1446), and A.I. 9 of the Durazzo Collection in Genoa (A.D. 1450); some of the identifications made in PLP are doubtful.

Scribe's note. At the end of the manuscript:

'This book was written by me, the lowliest of hieromonks Dositheos, in the year 6957 (= 1449), under the charge and at the expense of the most honourable monks, the brothers Joseph and Makarios... of the great monastery of Vatopedi. It was written in the great Lavra of St Athanasios on Athos.'

The many damaged sections of text in the note have been restored by comparison with the very similar note which exists in Cod. 1184 (1445/1446) at Vatopedi.
