Summary/Abstract: TWO LEAVES OF A CALENDAR WRITTEN IN “MIXED” UNCIAL OF THE 9TH CENTURY STEFANO PARENTY (ROME), ELENA VELKOVSKA (SIENA) (Summary) This study is devoted to the two folia used as fly-leaves in MS Sinai Gr. 925. The folia were written on Sinai in the 9th century in “mixed hagiopolite uncial,” a script characteristic for this area. They can be dated by internal evidence to after 835-843. The leaves are the remains of a calendar of liturgical commemorations for April and May. Some of the calendar entries consist only of names, while others contain a short hagiographical note and represent a precursor to the later Byzantine synaxarion.
