This work is known in a defective Greek text, and texts in Syriac and Georgian. Here, for the first time, substantial parts of the work preserved in diverse Armenian sources, are assembled, edited and translated. A detailed introduction has been provided, as well as a commentary and an appendix listing Epiphanian and pseudo-Epiphanian works known in Armenian.
