Palaeographical information Written in uncials, in black ink.
Contextual information Kiilerich (2001: 171): 'the dedicatory page has a golden cabled band frame of two interlaced squares arranged to form an eight-pointed star enclosed within a circle. This design, which is found in floor mosaics and in Coptic textiles, as far as I am aware, is unparalleled in manuscript illuminations. Each of the eight star points contains a gold letter of the name IOULIANA on a faded purple red ground. Around the octogonal outline of the inner picture runs the dedication'.

Genre(s) Patron-related epigram
Subject(s) Anicia Juliana (462 - 527)
Comment The epigram is hardly readable on the online reproduction, so Spatharakis (1976: 147) has been kept as text source.
