Abstract
The paper presents the interpretation of the Turkish marginalia on the famous Greek manuscript BnF, Grec 923 “Sacra Parallela”. This marginalia is a price label “100 akçe”, which was written in the second half of the XVth century after the conquest of Constantinople by the Ottoman Turks in 1453. This means that until this moment the Sacra Parallela manuscript was kept in Constantinople, and after that it was bought for money in someone’s private library and after some time was got at Mount Athos.
