They have all been printed at the Kasimatis & Ionas printing house during the period 1917-1920. Two of the broadsheets have an indication of the month in which they were printed (July 1919). They bear printed numbering (3-41) at top right of the recto, crossed out and corrected on several instances in ink by Cavafy. The first poem (“But Wise Men Apprehend What Is Imminent”) bears the number 14, crossed out in ink. The next poem (“In the Entrance of the Café”) bears the number “3” (corrected by hand from the printed “16”). From there on, the numbering is sequential.
