+τὸ μέτρον οὕτω τῶν ἰάμβων μοι μέτρει· |
καὶ τοὺς πόδας μὲν ἡ μέλισσα δεικνύτω,
τῶν | συλλαβῶν δὲ τὴν ἀρίθμησιν κύκλον,
τὸν | ζωδιακὸν εἰσορῶν μάνθανέ μοι.
μέλλων | δὲ μετρεῖν, καὶ στίχους πλέκειν, φίλο(ς),
ἅπασαν | ἐν νῶ τοῦ σκοποῦ τὴν εἰκόνα,
προσλαμβάν(ων) | ἄριστα τοὺς στίχους πλέκε·
πρῶτον μὲν | οὖν ἢ τρίτον, ἢ πέμπτον πόδα,
ἴαμβος, ἢ | σπονδεῖος εὐτρεπιζέτω,
τὸν δεύτερον | δὲ καὶ τέταρτον ἀξίως,
ἴαμβον ἁπλ(οῦν) | εἰσφέρων ἀπαρτίσεις,
ἕκτος δ’ ἰάμβω, | τέρπεται, κόσμον φέρων·
καὶ πυρριχίω | τὴν κάραν ὑψοῦ φέρει·
ἔστωσαν οὖν σοι, | πυρρίχιος μὲν λόγος·
σπονδεῖος αἴας | ἐκ μακρῶν χρόνων δύο·
λάχης δ’ ἴαμβος | καὶ λέβης, αὖ καὶ θέων·
ἰδοὺ τὸ πᾶν εἴληφ(ας) | ἐν βραχεῖ μέτρωον+
