Δὶς ὁ βασιλεὺς τῇ Θεουπόλει πόλει,
καὶ δὶς νικητὴς εἰσιὼν, κλέος νέμει·
καὶ δὶς δὶς οὗτος αὖθι τῇ Κωνσταντίνου,
καὶ μυριάκις μυριοστεφηφόρος·
ὡς τῶν καλῶν κάλλιστος Αὐσόνων ἄναξ,
ἐφίσταται θρίαμβον ἀρτύων πάλιν.

Translation(s) Twice the emperor bestows on the city of Theoupolis (Antioch)
glory and twice entering as a victor,
and two times twice he did the same on Constantinople

he arrives and prepares again a triumph.
