    • Persons: St. John Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople
    • Text Language: Ancient Greek
    • Title: Ιn Matthæum Homilia XC. al. XCI.
    • Content Description:

      The numbered folio 226 comes originally from a different codex than the one it currently is found in (Cod. 25). The folio provides text of one Homily in Matthew by John Chrysostom (Greek: Ὑπόμνημα εἰς τὸν Ἅγιον Ματθαίον τὸν Εὐαγγελιστή). In this occasion, the bound-in homily occurs within another homily by the same author. 

      Inc. (PG 58, col. 791, lines 25-26) : Mηδὲν δεινὸν νόμιζε εἶναι | πενίαν, καὶ οὐκ ἔσται σοι δει | νόν.

      Des. (PG 58, col. 792, lines 26-27) : Oὐ | κοῦν ῥῖψον τὸ ἀργύριον, ῥῖ | ψον τὸ χρυσίον. Καὶ ἐὰν ῥίψω,

      (The very extended title of the Homilia of the fragment as you find it in PG 58 : Homilia XC. al. XCI. : CAP. 28. v. 11. Qui cum abiissent, ecce quidam de custodibus ventientes in civitatem, nuntiaverunt principibus sacerdotum omnia quæ facta fuerant. 12. Et congregati cum senioribus, consilio inito, pecuniam multam dederunt militibus, 13. dicentes: Dicite quod discipuli ejus nocte renerunt, et furati sunt eum, nobis dormientibus. 14. Et si hoc audiatur a præside, nos suadebimus ei, et vos tutos faciemus.

      Ὁμιλία ϟ΄ : Πορευομένων δὲ αὐτῶν, ἰδοῦ τινες τῆς κουστωδίας ἐλθόντες εἰς τὴν πόλιν, ἀνήγγειλαν τοῖς ἀρχιερεῦσιν ἄπαντα τὰ γενόμενα. Καὶ συναχθέντες μετὰ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων, συμβούλιόν τε λαβόντες ἀργύρια ἱκανὰ ἔδωκαν τοῖς στρατιῶταις, λέγοντες˙ Εἴπατε ὅτι οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ ἐλθόντες νυκτὸς ἔκλεψαν αὐτόν, ἡμῶν κοιμωμένων. Καὶ ἐὰν ἀκουσθῇ τοῦτο ἐπὶ τοῦ ἡγεμόνος, ἡμεῖς πείσομεν αὐτόν, καὶ ὑμᾶς ἀμερίμνους ποιήσομεν.)
