Abstract :
In two Hispanic Greek codices, National Library and Monastery of El Escorial, is contained the epitome Του ἁγιου Ἐπιφανιου περι ιβ' λιθων accomplished by Anastasius of Sinai and included in its Quaestiones XL. Of the two Hispanic codices, the Escorialensis is the version containing more errors, while the Matritensis is a valuable document which can resolve some of the errors or mistaken readings contained in Migne’s edition, which is the only one in existence of this Epitome of Lapidary by Saint Epiphanius of Cyprus.
