Commentary

The owner can be identified with the same Euthymios who became protosynkellos and represented his namesake on a seal published by (Zacos, Seals II, no. 263. He will have lived in the second half of the 11th century.

On the see of Larissa (same name today), first attested in the 4th century and later mentioned as a metropolis with its suffragans in the notitiae, see Laurent, Corpus V/1, 508ff (and Lihačev, Molivdovully, 178, no. 5); Avramea, 124ff, 191ff; Koder-Hild, Hellas, 198-99; Fedalto, 458-60.
