In 2004 Ryan published a critical edition of Psalms 73-82 in the commentary of Dionysius Bar Salibi. He indicates where Bar Salibi depended on other commentaries, such as the shorter and longer commentaries of Athanasius in Syriac and the commentaries of Daniel of Salah and Isho’dad of Merw. Ryan did not pay special attention to the headings in the factual commentary of Bar Salibi. A comparison of these headings with the East Syriac headings makes it clear that they reflect the East Syriac tradition as it appears in commentaries such as Denḥa-Gregory and Sachau 215. Bar Salibi’s headings were not derived from East Syriac psalm manuscripts or the commentary of Isho’dad of Merw, on which his factual commentary frequently depends.
