Abstract:A miscellaneous manuscript in the Mediceo-Laurentian Library in Florence, Conventi soppressi, 20, contains, on fol. 73v, a brief notice about a woman on the Karian coast, a fearsome archer, who repelled two pirate ships. A date, (= 1341), is also written in, presumably the date of the event recorded. The manuscript contains works of Maximos Planoudis; the notice in question follows a poem on meter.
