See also Harley 7551 which is a Collotype circa 1880 of Paris gr. 224, cf Nares (1808c: 535): "Pictura secunda tres habet figuras; unam stantis, duas sedentium. Supra caput stantis scribitur, Ἰωάννης, ἡ δόξα τῆς ἐκκλησίας, λόγους ἑρευνῶν τους ἀπορρήτους παύλου. Supra sedentem, in dextra οἰκουμένιος, supra alium Θεοδώριτος. Circa oras picturarum etiam inscriptiones pinguntur, de Nerone, Paulo, &c. Scilicet, circa priorem: Ψυχη Νερωνος η τυραννικωτατη".
