Location of other archival materials
The unsigned proskynētarion held at the National Bank of Greek Cultural Foundation--see Kadas, "Hoi Hagioi Topoi. Eikonographēmena Proskynētaria 17ou - 18ou aiōna" (Athens, 1998), pp. 76-91--is apparently by the same scribe. Princeton Greek MS. 31 has a signed attribution to Dionysios, Hieromonachos (who is not necessarily Dionysios of Fourna, ca. 1670-ca. 1745) and the date 10 August 1695.
