(formerly occ/516)

- ὀ ἀπό(στολος) λέγ(ει) -
τὸν ἰκέτην σου τόνδε χ(ριστ)ε καὶ λάτριν·
ὁρᾶς ὁποίω σχήματ(ι) πρόσεισί σοι;
- χ(ριστὸς) -
ὀικτρῶμεν οῦν γε σφόδρα συντεταμένω·
ἀλλ᾽ εἰπὲ τὴν αἴτησιν αὐτὸς ἢν φέρει·
οὗτος γὰρ ουδὲν φθέγγεται τὸ παράπαν·
- ὀ από(στολος) -
ἐμοὶ μεσιτη χρώμενος θ(εο)ῦ λόγε·
σιγᾶν ὁδὶ κέκρικεν εὐλαβεῖ τρόπω·
ἀιτεῖ δὲ λαβεῖν ψυχικὴν σ(ωτη)ρίαν·
καὶ προστασίας χάριν ἠκριβομένης·
ἱν᾽ ευαγῶς σύστημα σεμνὸν ἰθύνας·
μισθὸν φρονίμ(ων) λήψεται διδασκάλων·
- ὀ χ(ριστὸς) -
ὀυκ ἀστοχήσει μάρκε τῶν ἠτημένων
