Summary note
  • A compilation of texts on theological, philosophical, ethical, philological, historical, mythological, and other subjects of several writers. Manuscript written in Greek script, in a neat and legible hand, in black ink. The compiler Kōnstantinos Dapontes is depicted sitting on a bench and gazing off to the right. He is clad in a green tunic fastened with a gold belt. His himation is red with a broad white border; it falls between his legs. He has short well groomed black hair, cut round over his head, and a black moustache. He holds a pen in the right hand while the left rests upon a page of an open blank book found on his desk. Behind the desk through an open window the hand of God emerges from a cloud blessing Dapontes. The sitting figure of Dapontes is depicted inside a large oval which is bordered in gold with an inscription: "Ho tēn vivlon tautēn katasterisas anēr ek tēs nēsou Skopelou." The whole design is placed against a rectangle that fills most of the page embellished with floral decoration in fourth angles. Below there is a frame with the inscription: "Riza men tou ponou pothos kai karpos tou pothou poros." At the bottom of the folio another inscription refers to the place and date: "En Voukourestiō etei sōtēriō AΨΛ [1730]." Bound in dark brown leather on hard boards with floriate roll border and a central lozenge both frontside and back. Sewn on three raised bands.
  • On frontispiece an engraving composed of several pieces is depicting a group of four "coats of arms" surrounded by two female royal figures; above them a crowned eagle with open wings holding a sword in his left leg and a half-moon in his right is accompanied by three suns. Latin inscription on top of the eagle's wings reads: " Nociva Retundo."
  • Colorful decorated headpiece on p. 1 depicts the Holy Trinity in a circle surrounded by the symbols of the four Evangelists in medallions and below the inscription: "Epeidē apo Theou dei archesthai kai eis Theon teleutan. Idou k'agō apo Theou archomenos eis Theon teleutēsō." The text starts with a large ornamental initial letter "E": "Eis Theos en trisi prosōpois merizomenos ... ."
