Constantinople in the oldest versions of the Life of Basil the Younger
The versions of the Life of Basil the Younger found in the Greek manuscript Athos Dionysiou 107
and in several copies of the Life’s Slavic translation date back to early stages of the text’s editing.
These versions provide a lot of important data that disappeared at a later stage as reflected in
the Moscow manuscript, which is reproduced in the Washington edition of 2014. Among other
things, Amastrianon and Ox squares can now be located with more precision.
