Occurrence 18614
(formerly occ/1983)

πολυχρονηθεὶς ἡμέραν ἐξ ἡμέρας:
κωνσταντῖνε ἄριστε (...)
ὡς ἐλαιῶν νεόφυτω κύκλω τῆς σῆς τραπέζης:
καὶ κατατρύφα τῶν μελιρρύτων λόγων:
αὖθις χρυσοστόμου τε τοῦ σοφωτάτου:
ἐγγὺς ὑπάρχει πανταχοῦ σοι προσδόκα:
κἄν εὔτονός τις καὶ σφριγῶν τὸ σαρκίον:
ἄδηλος ἐστὶ καὶ νέοις καὶ πρεσβύταις:
εἰς ἡλιακοὺς μακροκυκλοῦντας δρόμους:
ἴδοις υἱοὺς τῶν σῶν υἱῶν ἑν βαθυτάτω γήρα.
ἀεὶ τὸ τέρμα τῶν ἐμῶν χειρῶν βλέπων:
τοῦ παμμάκαρος καὶ σοφοῦ βασιλείου:
πλήν εἰσαεὶ βέλτιστε τοῦ βίου πέρας:
κἄν ἦς ἐν ἀκμῆ κἂν νεάζεις εἰσάγαν:
ἡ γὰρ δρεπάνη τῆς τομῆς τοῦ θανάτου:
πλήν χαῖρε λαβὼν καὶ τὸ τῶν πόνων πέρας:
