Cf. Lk 24. 16. This tractate was given on Monday of Easter Week and one of the readings for the day was Lk 24-13-49; see the discussion of the order of readings and the time of delivery of these sermons in the introduction. Several of the codices indicate the day of the week on wich the particular sermon was given, and for this one Monday is the day stated; these ten Tractates are one of the few examples where such information is preserved by the copyist from entries made on the codices by the original shorthand copyist. See Poque, Les Lectures, 228-29.
