Two previously unrecognized citations from the lost Greek Pseudo-Clementine Recognition have been found in Nikon Monachos’s Pandektes. They are identified here and edited on the basis of eleven manuscripts. A brief discussion of their significance for the reception-history of the Recognition and for its text follows. Nikon’s now-evident knowledge of the Recognition undercuts the consensus that the Recognition was essentially unknown at his time. To highlight their textual significance, the new fragments are compared, in parallel columns, with the corresponding passages in the ancient Latin and Syriac translations of the Greek Recognition. An appendix supplies a collation of eleven manuscripts for Nikon’s known citation from the Klementia, Homily 12.25.1-28.2, against the current critical edition by Rehm.
