Contextual information The epigram accompanies a poem by Gregory of Nazianzus, carm. II 1, 88: inc. 'Τί σοι θέλεις γενέσθαι | ψυχὴν ἐμὴν ἐρωτῶ'. This poem by Gregory is preceded by a title, which states 'του αὐτου εἰς τὴν ἑαυτου ψυχὴν στίχοι ἡμίαμβοι'. See also Palla 1995-1996: 4-8.

The epigram is followed by a hemiamb from Sophocles Ajax 1087, 'ἕρπει παραλλὰξ ταῦτα', which pertains to the same theme of the passions (cf. Palla 1995-1996: 7).
