    12 The genuine or fake manuscripts sold by Simonides in Europe are not cataloged. There are those in
    the National Library (Athens),
    the British Library (London),
    the Bodleian Library (Oxford),
    the Austrian National Library (Vienna)
    in the Bibliotheque de Chatres (France),
    the City Museum (Liverpool) and seemingly also in other collections.
    SA Note
    Gennadius (Gennadeion) in Athens has a fine collection referenced in the Pasquale Massimo Pinto writings.
    University of Thessalonika supplied the very critical Epistle of Barnabas

    In Germany, Leipzig University might especially help with the Hermas editions, and they have the Codex Friderico-Augustanus. THe Sinaiticus fragments in St. Petersburg and Sinai are also very important. However, one scholar, I think one of the Italians, wrote to me that he had tried, and they found nothing in Leipzig.

    "Nothing is certainly known of the history of the manuscript before the 19th cent."


    ... Simonides seems to have spoken about the date of Sinaiticus prior to September 1862, in so far as Tregelles knew of this theory before then. He spoke of it to J.E. Hodgkin in 1860 and in a letter to Sir Thornas Phillipps on August 2nd 1861. (See British Library Add MS 52502A folio 348 and the Phillipps Robinson MS. collection in the Bodleian Library).

    The reconstruction of Simonides’ years in Victorian England relies first of all on a number of unpublished manuscript documents, the most important of which are the letters to, from and about Simonides included in the manuscript Additional 42502AB of the British Library and originally from the personal archive of John Eliot Hodgkin, probably Simonides’ chief patron in England. The papers of the book-collector Thomas Phillipps and the librarian Frederick Madden that are in the British Library and the Bodleian Library of Oxford, also deserve to be mentioned. Next is the information that can be collected from what Simonides himself wrote both in the prefaces of the works published in England, such as the Facsimiles of certain Portions of the Gospel of St. Matthew etc. (1861) or The Periplus of Hannon (1864), and in newspapers. Finally, at least three scholarly contributions must be taken into consideration: a chapter included by the amateur historian James Anson Farrer in his 1907 book on Literary Forgeries, based on the papers of Hodgkin; the substantial chapter devoted to Simonides by the book scholar Alan N.L. Munby in his stunning work on Thomas Phillipps, published in the 1950s (the “Phillipps Studies”); and the book about the Codex Sinaiticus and the Simonides affair written by the New Testament scholar James K. Elliott in 1982.5

    =========================

    Google translate

    Gennadius of Scholar, archbishop of Constantinople and the Ecumenical Patriarch, who was in charge of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the first book? The Holy Father of Gregory, the Archbishop of Thessalonica, Palamas, a spokesman for the Faith. London:

    So this may be Four Theological Writings, which has some Hermas material in the beginning.


    You can go back and see the Simonides name on the front, and a title of the first work is something like
    The Holy Spirit That from the Father and from the Son Proceeds
    https://books.google.com/books?id=5_cCAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA1


    Gennadius the Scholar, Archbishop of Constantinople and Ecumenical Patriarch, the the first book lettering(?), concerning the outpouring of the Holy Spirit; our holy father Gregory, Archbishop of Thessalonica, Homily (Conversation) concerning the faith, a report.


    ==================================

    The title shows up here, maybe Methodius, in an 1853 work
