Abstract: The Chronicle, composed in the second half of the 9th century in one of the (sub)urban monasteries of Constantinople by a monk who calls himself ‛αμαρτωλός "sinful," contains the history of the world from the creation until the year 842. Its Slavic translation, which contains a continuation until the year 948, was very widely deseminated in Rus’. This paper provides a detailed description of its oldest known copy.
