Specification The epigrams mention rebuilding activities started by Hendrik van Vianden in 1253. According to Tenhaeff (1913, 56) the epigrams should be dated shortly after 1274, at a time that the count of Holland (Floris V) exerted much influence in Utrecht. On the contrary, Coster (1914, 282, n. 2) argues that the epigrams cannot be dated earlier than the first half of the 14th century.
