’ Paraphrasis of the Institutes. – In none of the many manuscripts of Theophilos’ Paraphrasis the first title is transmitted. This is commonly – and also in the recent Groningen edition – explained by an early ‘mechanical’ loss. The author suggests another solution to the problem: the first title was omitted intentionally when Theophilos’ Paraphrasis of the Institutes replaced Photios’ Eisa­goge because it contained too strong similarities to the latter’s first title and inappro­priate allusions to legal teaching. This intentional omission is dated to the years 886–888 and attributed to the emperor Leon VI himself.
