This paper deals with an archeographical analysis of the Greek minuscule
manuscript D-227 kept in the collection of the IOM, RAS. The author reviews its present
condition and deciphers the inscriptions left on its binding by the staff of the Winter
Palace Imperial Library when it was delivered there and notes made by the staff of the
Asiatic Museum (forerunner of the IOM). The contents of the parts are established, as is,
wherever possible, their numbering. Inscriptions in Greek, including one written by
Hierotheos, Patriarch of Antioch (1850–1885), are deciphered and translated.
On April 20, 2017, at the Far Eastern Studies Seminar organized by the Department of Far Eastern Studies of the IOM RAS, Prof. Dr. S.O. Kurbanov will submit his presentation Modern Pyongyan: People, Reforms and Prospects.
