CHAPTER EIGHTEEN
THE ADAPTATION OF VATICANUS GR. 2231

The third Christian adaptation of Epictetus' Enchmridion was discovered by M. Spanneut in Vaticanus gr. 2231 (Spanneut, Moines 53-55). At the end of his brief discussion Spanneut remarks (55): "II serait étonnant que le codex Vatic, gr. 2231 soit le seul représentant de ce passage du Manuel à, la spiritualité religieuse (...)", but in fact Vaticanus gr. 2231 (V) does prove to be the only MS to contain the adaptation, which I accordingly designate Vat.
