In terms of the number of manuscripts of works by Classical authors, the Dionysiou Monastery occupies fifth position; however, given that the manuscripts of Classical authors belonging to the Panteleimon Monastery, which lies fourth with 64 such codices, almost all date from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the collection at Dionysiou is more important.

As for the works of Herodotus in particular, of the seven manuscripts which survive on Athos, the Dionysiou codex is the most notable one.
