+ εἴληφε τέρμα βίβλος | ἡγλαϊσμένη·
χ(ριστο)υ φέρου|σα τοὺς θεοφθόγγους λό|γους·
ἔγραψε ταύτην νικόλαος ἐν πόθω·
ἐν ἐ|πισκόποις ἀρχιερεὺς ὑ|πάρχων·
γαίας καλαβρί|τιδος ῥιγίου πόλις·
καὶ | σικελίας θρηνακρί|τιδος | χώρας·
θησαυρὸν αὐ|τὴν ὥσπερ ἄφθαρτον | μέγα·
ἔχειν θελήσας | παντὸς ἐυκλεεστέραν· |
χρυσοῦ σμαράγδου | τʹ ἀργύρου τε πορφύρας· |
καὶ μαργάρων, τε τῶν | σελασφορων λίαν·
ὕ|λης τε πάσης | φιλτάτης | ψευδολόγω·
τὰ φθαρ|τὰ γὰρ πέφυκε τέρ|πειν ἀφρόνων·
κτη||νῶν δίκην αἴσθησιν | οἱ χ(ριστο)υ λόγοι· |
τέρπουσιν | φωτίζουσιν ἐμφρόνων | νόας·
καὶ προξενοῦσι | τῶν μελλόντων τὸ κλέος·
