The present paper aims to shed light on the activity of the scribe Iohannes Dokeianos and some other Greek scholars who were active in Constantinople after 1453. In particular, it focuses on the evidence to be had from two manuscripts, the fragmentary codex Ambr. D 137 Suss., 30 + S. P. 6/14 ff. 592-599 and Ambr. G 69 sup. The first manuscript is proved to be the work of two scribes, Iohannes Dokeianos himself and an anonymous scribe of the same period. It also preserves an unknown brief commentary on Libanius, or. XVII, 22 composed by the «anti-Latin» theologian Markos Eugenikos. The other manuscript, Ambr. G 69 sup., was copied and owned by Dokeianos and annotated by a number of Greek scholars, including Matthaios Kamariotes. Moreover, some annotations on a flyleaf by Dokeianos himself show that the manuscript was still in Constantinople in 1492. Finally, a critical edition of Markos Eugenikos’ unpublished text is included.
