At the end of the section of Violakes Typikon pertaining to funerals (pg. 439), there is a note:

Please note, this order for funerals is chanted for every departed faithful, whether, a king, a patriarch, a bishop, a priest, a laymen, whether male or female, old or young, and for infants also, with the exception being the κατ᾽ ἤχον Idiomela are suppressed, the prayer for an infant from the Euchologion is said, as also the gospel.

"For you all are one in Christ Jesus..." (Galatians 3:28)

Can anyone speak to the origin of this note? Was this simply a centuries-old agraphon typikon of the EP finally put into writing? The note clearly shows an awareness that there are other services in the Euchologion and prohibits them.
