Currently no print catalogue for Vaticani græci 933-1484 (though there is an unpublished catalogue by Νικόπουλος for 2502-2632 and one in preparation by Yantz for 1288-1421). Some information can often be found in the various Studi e Testi volumes (see Bibliography) and/or the Vatican website.  The Vatican's online search engine (see Online Resources) does not as of this writing always provide stable URL's, but manuscripts can be searched by call-number with an "Index" search. These often provide bibliographical material. Further information can also often be had by performing a Google search with "" specified as the domain (do an Advanced Search or add "" to the terms).

Πίνακες gives as the scribe for 1309 "Γαβριὴλ μοναχὸς Κριτόπουλος".  Not in Vogel-Gardthausen, which gives for "Κριτόπουλος" Γεώργιος (with question-mark, p. 79) and Θεόδωρος (p. 138).
