This is a page from the book, Dhail Dīwān aḍ-Ḍuʿafā of Imām adh-Dhahabī, which is a work where he wrote about narrators, weak ones, abandoned ones, trustworthy ones etc.

Under the names that begin with the letter م he wrote:

Imaam adh Dhahabi About Himself

“Muḥammad ibn Aḥmad ibn ʿUthmān al-Ghāfiqī: he has a bad memory, he is not precise and nor is he mindful of Allaah [muttaqī]. May the Most High forgive him.”

He was talking about himself, Imām adh-Dhahabī is Muḥammad ibn Aḥmad ibn ʿUthmān al-Ghāfiqī, raḥimahullah.
