Abstract [en]

Codex Marcianus Graecus 266 contains a μελέτη written in the character of Paul before the Areopagus and attributed to the learned monk Sophonias. This previously unpublished text is valuable both as an example of Palaiologan rhetoric and as additional testimony to the elusive Sophonias, who, in our opinion, is the same as the Sophonias to whom paraphrases of Aristotelian works are ascribed. The declamation is particularly noteworthy for its Platonic allusions. We divide our article into the following parts: a brief description of the manuscript and of the text; a presentation of the evidence for Sophonias; a few concluding observations; some remarks on the edition, then the edition itself along with an English translation which we hope will be of use to other scholars.
