Occurrence 17065
(formerly occ/181)

Ὄντως ἔρωτα θεῖον ἐνστερνισμἐνος
κινῶν τε τὸν νοῦν πρὸς βιωφελεῖς τρίβους·
καὶ πνέ(υματο)ς τα θεῖα συζητῶν βάθει·
καὶ τῆς γραφῆς τὸν πλοῦτον ἐν ψυχῆ φέρων·
ταύτην ἐναργῶς καὶ θεοφρόνως ἄγαν·
ἔτευξε βίβλον ὡς θεογράφους πλάκας·
βασίλειος ὁ πρῶτος τῶν νοταρίων·
τιμαῖς ἀνάκτων εὐσεβῶς διεξάγων˙
Πράξεις φέρουσα τῶν μαθητῶν τοῦ λόγου·
νόμους τε τούτων καὶ σοφὰς παραινέσεις·
ὡς ἂν διʹ αὐτῶν βελτιωθεὶς τὸν βίον
καὶ τὰς ἐν αὐτῶ δυσχερεῖς περιστάσεις·
κατευμαρίζων καὶ διευθύνων ἅμα·
εὕροι συνεργοὺς πάσιν ἐν τοῖς πρακτέοις·
ψυχῆς τε καὶ μάλιστα θερμοὺς προστάτας. +
