Early Church Fathers
77 Ornamenta; another MS. has armamenta.
78 Or, of all the wicked.
79 The text has deo, God, obviously a misprint for oleo, oil.
80 Or, who wearest such (things) on thy body.
82 Proecuncitus, corrected to proeconatus or ans.
83 Momordidit infernum, which is obviously corrput. The translator may have read dedhxe a#|dhn, but Hades, for dedeixe a#|dhn, brought Hades to light.
1 [Compare the translation of the letter of Pilate to Claudius, found in the Acts of Peter and Paul; also a similar letter incorporated in The Gospel of Nicodemus, second part, Latin, first version, chap. 13 (29), p. 454.-R.]
1 Or, Augustus.
2 Or, Augustus.
3 Codex A has a better reading-arteries. [The MS. here referred to is in Paris, of the fourteenth century (a.d. 1315).-R.]

5 Or, so men appeared on high.

And again there was thunder, and a mighty noise from heaven, so that all our land shook and trembled. Another: And there began to be earthquakes in the hour in which the nails were fixed in Jesus' hands and feet, until evening.
