According to Russian philologist Aleksey Shakhmatov, Novgorodsko-Sofiysky Svod (Russian: Новгородско-Софийский свод, Novgorod-Sofia Compilation) is a tentative name for a hypothetical common source for the Novgorod Fourth Chronicle and the Sofia First Chronicle. [1]

Shakhmatov initially dated it by 1448 (hence it also used to be called 1448 compilation; Russian: "свод 1448 г."), but later revised his opinion to 1430s.[1] Some Russian philologists shared his opinion, while others attribute the common source to the 1418 compilation of Photius, Metropolitan of Moscow.[2]
