  4. The signature of Klement (??) the Monk, which appears only faintly at the end of Deuteronomy, appears clearly on page 624, before Psalms.

    I have several palaeographical problems in the TCG commentary that I have to recheck now.

    1. Greetings your alien holiness. Greek, fifteenth century style (like the book of Revelation) - fixing up some of the gaps in the codex.
