Comment Young (1908: 328): 'some nine iambic verses decipherable with difficulty'.
Des Places (1961: 7): 'Vlad. 184 contains the Κλῖμαξ (Scala Paradisi) of Ioannes Climacus, Ascetica of Marcus the Hermit, and the De Perfectione Spirituali capita centum of Diadochus Photicensis. Of the two facsimiles in K. and S. Lake, Dated Greek Minuscule Manuscripts to the year 1200, vi (Boston, 1936), plates 375-6, the second exhibits the last sixteen of the iambic trimeters which follow the text of Diadochus (cf. R.E.G. lxx [1957], 380); similarly, in Glasg. V. 3. 6 we find on the verso of the last folio (381) nine iambic trimeters, of which only the first two are reproduced in Young and Aitken's catalogue with dots in the first line, before ... ρώσας; we ought, perhaps, to read <πυ>ρώσας. Thus, we would have: τὸν νοῦν <πυ>ρώσας πρὸς βάθος νοημάτων. This is the scribe's usual final song of praise on the spiritual usefulness of the work'.
