Comment Schulthess (2018: 189-190 and 2018: 78) considers Gabriel to be the son of Daniel, based on the observation that the word "γόνου" occurs in the same verse as "Γαβριήλ". According to D'Aiuto (2003: 243) their relationship is the other way around: Daniel is the son of Gabriel.
In D'Aiuto's opinion, Daniel was the possessor of the manuscript and the epigram, along with the cryptographic subscription by which it is followed, is written by the scribe Kerykos, whose name is mentioned in the subscription. Schulthess (2018: 190-191 and 2018: 78-79), on the other hand, thinks that Gabriel is the scribe: "Also in the same verse, the present participle τελούντος could be related to a scribe finishing his work. This scribe would then be Gabriel Philokalos, son of Daniel Philentolos. (...) In my opinion, κηρύκου goes together with διακόνου and describes the function of 'preacher-deacon' to Gabriel."
