(formerly occ/1403)

τὸ μέτρον οὕτω τῶν ἰάμβων μοι νόει·
καὶ τ(οὺς) πόδ(ας) μ(ὲν), ἡ μέλισσα δεικνύτω
τῶν συλλαβῶν δὲ τ(ὴν) ἀρίθμησιν κύκλον
τ(ὸν) ζωδιακ(ὸν) εἰσορῶν μάνθανέ μοι.
μέλων δὲ μετρεῖν· καὶ στίχους πλέκειν φίλος,
ἅπασαν ἐν νῶ τοῦ σκοποῦ τὴν εἰκόνα
προσλαμβάνων ἄριστα τ(οὺς) στίχους πλέκε.
πρῶτον μ(ὲν) οὖν καὶ τρίτον ἢ πέμπτον πόδα,
ἴαμβον ἢ σπονδεῖον εὐτρέπιζέ μοι,
τὸν δεύτ(ε)ρον δὲ καὶ τέταρτον ἀξί(ως)
ἴαμβον ἁπλοῦν εἰσφέρων ἀπαρτίσεις,
ἕκτος δ’ ἴαμβον τέρπεται κόσμον φέρ(ων).
καὶ πυριχίω, τὴν κάραν ὑψοῦ φέρει.
ἔστω γὰρ οὖν σοι πυρίχιος μ(ὲν), λόγος.
σπονδεῖος αἴας ἐκ μακρ(ῶν) χρόνων δύο.
λάχ(ης) δ’ ἴαμβος καὶ λέβης τε (καὶ) θέων.
ἰδοὺ τὸ πᾶν εἴληφ(ας) ἐν βραχεῖ μέτρον:-
