Anthologion

Anthologion (Α᾿νθολόγιον), in Latin, Florilegium, a term used figuratively, like the classical word Anthology (ἀνθολογία, floral discourse), literally "a garland of flowers," hence a collection of short sentences from celebrated authors. It is the technical name of one of the Church books in use among the Greeks. It contains principally the offices which are sung on the festivals of our Lord, the Virgin, and the chief saints; then those called "communia," appointed for the festivals of the prophets, apostles, martyrs, pontiffs, etc. — Suicer, Thesaurus, p. 345.
