Abstract The paper investigates a hitherto unidentified 16th c. folio from the Hilandar Monastery, pointing out that it contains a part of the “Praise of the Virtuous Woman” in Proverbs, chapter 31. By comparing it to earlier versions in Slavic Paroemiaria (=Prophetologia) and in the full biblical texts, both South and East Slavic, the place of this witness in the chain of transmission is elucidated, corroborating the accepted view that all of the attested versions derive from a single early (perhaps 9th c.-)
translation. The unique readings of the Hilandar folio are explained, mostly as a result of lexical updating, but at times also as a result of free common-sense replacement, or as the fruit of consulting the Slavic against the Greek LXX. In one instance the copyist of the Hilandar folio seems to follow the Vulgate.
