Στίχοι εἰς τὸν Ἅγιον Ἀθανάσιον τὸν Πατριάρχην
Cf. MTA.8.2 (Iviron 50)

Beautiful archaizing hand with ornate capitals.


3r (faded in film MTA.8.8) is mainly taken up by the image of a standing figure (Athanasius?) in a rectangle, apparently with nimbus. Also in the field a chi-rho in a circle, and above the field two peacocks.

Μὴν Ὀκώβριος κδ'

Ἀκολουθία ὁσίου Ἀθανασίου (incipit, «Ὄλβιος γενόμενος καρπός· Τοῦ ἁγίου πατριάρχου· πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν ἐξεδήμησας· καὶ συνηρίθμησα[ς] τοῖς καλῶς τὸν βίον...»)

Βίος καὶ πολιτεία τοῦ ἐν ἁγίοις πατρὸς ἡμῶν Ἀθανασίου ἀρχιεπισκόπου Κωνσταντινουπόλεως (59r).

127r is a calligram, beginning «κρείττονος μετουσίαν· ὧν γένοιτο πάντας ἡμᾶς ἐπιτυχεῖν ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ τῷ Κυρίῳ ἡμῶν [reference to Chrysostom?], ᾧ πρέπει δόξα, κράτος καὶ προσκύνησις...» κλπ.

Ἐγκώμιον εἰς τὸν ἐν ἁγίοις πατέρα ἡμῶν Ἀθανάσιον [οὕτω] πατριάρχην Κων/πόλεως (128v).

Ἐν τέλει (152v): «Τὸ παρὸν βιβλίον ἐγράφη διὰ χειρὸς Ἰωαννίκου εὐτελοῦς ἱερομονάχου διὰ συνδρομῆς τοῦ ὁσιωτάτου κῦρ Θεοφάνους μοναχοῦ, ἐν ᾗ καὶ ἀφιέρωται παρ' αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν μονὴν τοῦ ἐν ἁγίοις πατρὸς ἡμῶν Ἀθανασίου ἀρχιεπισκόπου Κων/πόλεως τοῦ νέου, εἰς τὴν σκήτ[ην τῶν] Ἰβήρων· ὁ δὲ βουληθεὶς ποτέ τις ἀποξενῶσαι αὐτὸ ἀπὸ τὴν αὐτὴν ἁγίαν μονὴν οὐκ ατιμώρητος ἔσεται [οὕτω]. Ἐν ἔτει ,ζρκδ' ἰνδικτιῶνος ιδ' [anno mundi 7124 = AD 1616].»

Rough 19th- or 20th-century notes follow (153r), with an attempt to turn AM date into AD, then (153v) a contemporary transcription of signature above, with some spelling errors replaced with others. Then, in yet another (lovely) hand, a reference to the Incarnation: «Θεὸς ὄπου βούλεται νικᾶται φύσεως τάξις. Κύριε Κύριε μὴ ἀπορίψῃς ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ σοῦ.»

Finally (154v), and again in the old hand, a hymn presumably referring to one of the October festivals (as that of the 2nd October to the Deipara: «Πῶς σου τὴν χάριν ὑμνήσαιμι, καὶ τὴν πολλὴν πρὸς ἐμέ, τὸν ἀνάξιον δοῦλόν σου, καθ' ἑκάστην πρόνοιαν, ἣν σαφῶς ἐπιδείκνυσαι; ...Σὺ οὖν καὶ ἔτι νῦν, εἰς ἀεί μου πρόστηθι, παντὸς κακοῦ, ζῶντα καὶ θανόντα με, ἐκλυτρουμένη Σεμνή.»

Finally, in very rough hand (155r, with spelling regularized here), «1863 ἔκαμε μιὰ χιονιὰ μεγάλη ὁποὺ ἐσκέπασε τὸ σπίτι ὅλο. Κύριλλος μοναχὸς Ἰβηρίτης Κεφαλληναῖος ἔγραψα τὰ ἄνω.»
