- Walters Ms. W.530.A, St. Mark
- Greek, Ancient (t0 1453)
- This author portrait once preceded the Lenten readings (mostly taken from the Gospel of Mark) in a Gospel lectionary now in Athens, National Library of Greece MS 2552. The Evangelist has momentarily paused writing and raises a hand to his chin in a conventional gesture signifying thought. On the desk in front of him lie a pair of compasses, used for ruling the parchment pages before writing on them, and an inkwell.
