Ὁ γοῦν ἐρευνῶν τεχνικῶς τὰ βιβλία,
Γραφὰς τόνους τε, καὶ χρόνους, καὶ πνεύματα,
Σύγγνωθί μοι πταίοντι καὶ πεπτωκότι·
Βροτὸς γὰρ ὢν ἥμαρτον, οὐ θαυμαστόν <τι>.

Comment Text of Sakkelion (1890: 7) modified by DBBE.

The epigram is printed by Sakkelion (1890: 7) as the last part of an epigram inc. Ὦ νοῦς διαυγής, ὦ θεόφθογγον στόμα (Type 4558), but in the manuscript it is actually presented as a separate text.
As in the text given by Sakkelion (1890: 7) verse 19 (i.e. verse 4 of this type) has eleven instead of the expected twelve syllables, Kominis (1988:26) added τι, thus making the verse of twelve syllables.
Number of verses 4
