Πολυχρονηθεὶς ἡμέραν ἐξ ἡμέρας
εἰς ἡλιακοὺς μακροκυκλοῦντας δρόμους,
Κωνσταντῖνε ἄριστε (...)
ἴδοις υἱοὺς τῶν σῶν υἱῶν ἐν βαθυτάτῳ γήρᾳ
ὡς ἐλαιῶν νεόφυτα κύκλῳ τῆς σῆς τραπέζης·
ἀεὶ τὸ τέρμα τῶν ἐμῶν χειρῶν βλέπων
καὶ κατατρύφα τῶν μελιρρύτων λόγων
τοῦ παμμάκαρος καὶ σοφοῦ Βασιλείου
αὖθις Χρυσοστόμου τε τοῦ σοφωτάτου.
Πλὴν εἰσαεὶ βέλτιστε τοῦ βίου πέρας
ἐγγὺς ὑπάρχει πανταχοῦ σοι προσδόκα
κἂν ᾖς ἐν ἀκμῇ, κἂν νεάζεις εἰσάγαν,
κἂν εὔτονός τις καὶ σφριγῶν τὸ σαρκίον.
Ἡ γὰρ δρεπάνη τῆς τομῆς τοῦ θανάτου
ἄδηλός ἐστι καὶ νέοις καὶ πρεσβύταις·
πλὴν χαῖρε λαβὼν καὶ τὸ τῶν πόνων πέρας.

Comment The text as edited in Beneševič (1911: 204-205) displays a wrong verse order, due to a misreading of the manuscript. We thank Georgi Parpulov for pointing to this inconsistency.
