|Comment||Lauxtermann (2003: 314): "The scribe of M" (i.e. Madrid, Vitr. 26-2) "supposed that this Bardas was the famous rebel Bardas Phokas who died at the battle of Abydos in 989, but that is of course impossible. The place of death, the cause of death and the fact that the Bardas of the epitaph left behind young orphans, whereas Bardas Phokas was ageing when he died – all this proves that the scribe of M did not make a very lucky guess. Bardas probably died during the Cretan expedition of 961, or afterwards when the island had been recaptured from the Arabs."|
