      This article critiques prior epistolary analysis of the Mar Saba Clementine done by Jeff Jay in comparison with a variety of other Greek and Latin epistles. As a closer match, it brings forward Serapion's letter on the Gospel of Peter apud Eusebius. Due to a pair of formal and conceptual parallels, combined in the Historia ecclesiastica, the article hypothesizes that Morton Smith's discovery is a modern forgery, which he based upon Eusebius's excerpt of Serapion in Hist. eccl. 6.12 and upon Eusebius's paraphrase of the authentic Clement in Hist. eccl. 6.14.
