Occurrence 18864
(formerly occ/2262)

Ἡ δέλτος αὕτη τὴν τετράστοιχον κτίσιν:
λογογραφοῦσα μυστικῶς πέλει κτίσις·
φέρει γὰρ ὡς γῆν τὰς στερεμνίους πτύχας·
τὸν ἄργυρόν τε λευκόμορφον ὡς ὕδωρ·
ἔχει διαυγῆ λευκόλεπτον αἰθέρα:
ἐν ὧ μὲν εἰσίν ὥσπερ ἀστέρες λόγοι·
ὡς πῦρ δέ θερμὸ(ς) τοῦ λέοντος ὁ πόθος·
οὗτο(ς) γὰρ αὐτὴν εὐφυῶς ἡρμοσμὲνην,
ἀνεκαίνισεν εὐκλεὴς φιλοπόνως·
ἀλλ᾽ ὦ χ(ριστ)έ μου τῶ πόθω κτισαμένωι,
λύτρον παράσχε δεινῶν ἁμαρτημάτων·
ταῖς δεήσεσιν τῶν εὐαγγελιστῶν σου;
ματθαίου μάρκου λουκᾶ καὶ ἰωάννου:-
