Neocaesarea - Canon 14

The chorepiscopi, however, are indeed after the pattern of the Seventy; and as fellow-servants, on account of their devotion to the poor, they have the honor of making the oblation.

This canon appears to be a continuation of the previous.  The chorepiscopi were not considered sufficiently qualified to be full overseers but could administer the Lord's Supper without undue restriction.
