+ εἰδωλοποιῶν ἐμπαθῆ πᾶσ(αν) θέαν·
καὶ πάντα καιρὸν καταναλίσκων μάτην,
ψυχὴ τὸ παρὸν ὀργανῶ σοι βιβλίον,
ὧ τῶν ἑορτῶν ζωγραφῶ τ(ὰς) ἐμφάσεις,
φαιδρὸν καθιστῶν τῆ μετέξει τὸν βίον,
καὶ τοὺς τύπους τίθημι τοὺς τῶν ἁγί(ων),
ἐξ ὧν ὁ πᾶς ἄνωθ(εν) ἡγνίσθη χρόνος.
πρὸ(ς) γὰρ τὸν ἑσμὸν τῶν παθ(ῶν) δυσμάχ(ων)
ἐχρῆν τὸν ἐσμὸν συνδραμ(εῖν) τῶν συμμάχ(ων)
καίτοι γε κἂν εἷς τῶν τοσούτ(ων) ἧν τύπ(ων),
οὐκ ἂν πρὸ(ς) ἐχθρῶν συμπλοκ(ὰς) ὑπεστάλης.
πρὸ(ς) δ᾽ οὖν τὰ σὰ τραύματα (καὶ) τ(ὰς) σὰς νόσους,
τὸ σύνθετον φάρμακον ἐκράθη τόδε.
ταύτ(ας) δέ σοι τέταχα τ(ὰς) ἔξω πτύχας, ||
εἰς ἄργυρον θεὶς καὶ χρυσὸν τοὺς μαργ(άρ)ους,
ὡς ἂν ἔχη κλεῖς εἴ τις ἔστι σοι θύρα,
καὶ τοῦ πονηροῦ τ(ὰς) κλόπ(ας) ἀνατρέπη.
χάριν δὲ σὴν ἔγραψα τοὺς θείους τύπους,
θερμοῦ, πόθου χρώματα καθάπαξ χέας,
ὡς ἂν μετ᾽ αὑτῶν ἐγγραφῆς τῶν ταγμ(ά)τ(ων),
τοὺς δυσμενεῖς φυγοῦσα τ(ῶν) ἔργων τόμους.
παλαιολόγος. ἄγγελος. δούκ(ας) τάδε
βασιλέως παῖς | εὐσεβὴς (καὶ) δεσπότης,
δημήτριος τὴν | κλῆσιν, ἐκ | δημη|τρί|ου|+
