Summary/Abstract: The article publishes and analyses the text of the only post-Byzantine Slavi document preserved in the archives of the Athonite monastery of Xenophontos. It dates from 1612 and describes the borders and the border marks of Xenophontos’s domain on Mount Athos. This is an unique case, since the only certain Athonite Slavic document of this type is a Slavic delimitation of the land of Chilandar dating from 13th century. The Slavic act of Xenophontos indicates that by 1612 its monks were prevailingly Slavs.
