|Δαυῒδ μελωδέοντι τῆς ἐκκλησίας|
|ὃς τῆ πρὸς αὐτὸν ἐκπλαγεὶς τραγωδίη|
|ζώων φύσεις θέλγοντά που καὶ δενδρέων|
|ἀλλʹ ὀφρέα κρούοντα θείην πυκτίδα|
|θεὸν σέβοντα ὃν πάροιθεν ἠγνόουν|
|τὸ καινὸν ᾆσμα ποῖος ἔψεται νόος|
|ὀρφία τοῦτον οὐ τὸν ἔξω προσφράσοι|
|ὡς οἷα τοῖς μύθοισιν ἐξυφασμένα|
|ἧς τοῖς μέλεσιν ἕπετʹ ἐθνέων γένη.|

|Comment||The order of verses was originally completely different, see Follieri 1964:465-467 for a reconstruction of the right order. Probably, in the original codex (now lost) the epigram was written in two columns, but was copied top-down instead of from the left to the right. Follieri also concludes that the epigram was written in an earlier period (IX-X).
Matthaei (1805: 223) mentions that the epigram is preserved on f. 31.
