Last Pages from Gospels: KHABOURIS vs. Damhallte
In Borgian ms. the subscription reads.

"Here endeth the Gospel which Tatianus compiled and named Diatessaron, i.e., The Fourfold, a compilation from the four Gospels of the holy Apostles, the excellent Evangelists (peace be upon them). It was translated by the excellent and learned priest, Abu?l Faraj ?Abdulla ibn-at-Tayyib (may God grant him favour), from Syriac into Arabic, from an exemplar written by ?Isa ibn-?Ali al-Motatabbib, pupil of Honain ibn-Ishak (God have mercy on them both). Amen."

The Aramaic text, which is not know to be extant today, from which the Arabic translation was made, is said to be from about the year 900 A.D.

You can read and study this in an English translation at this website below:
