19. How this Book came to be found
And DĔMTĔYS (the Patriarch TIMOTHEUS (?) who sat from 511 to 517), the Archbishop of RM (i.e., CONSTANTINOPLE, BYZANTIUM), said, "I have found in the Church of [Saint] SOPHIA among the books and the royal treasures a manuscript [which stated] that the whole kingdom of the world [belonged] to the Emperor of RM and the Emperor of ETHIOPIA."
