Comment One main scribe copied the text of the Pege Gnoseos in 1296. Although at first glance the script on f. 1v seems to have been written by a scribe different from the main copyist, there are many details that reveal the same hand; and both variants of the script are very similar in style and details to those of the scribe Symeon Kalliandres, a priest, nomikos and protekdikos of Rhodes.

Folios 2r-3r and marginal scholia throughout the manuscript were composed and almost certainly written by Gregory (baptismal name George) Chioniades in 1301/1302.

The colophon on f.271v features the date 1296, which has been corrected by a later hand (most likely, Chioniades himself) to 1301/1302. (Kavrus-Hoffmann (2005: 219-222)).
