ὁτὰν μέλλετε ταῦτην ἠλειφέ|ναι τὴν δέλτον:

Neilos II (12th c.) - VGH: 328.B (abbas of the Monastery of Saint Mary < Grottaferrata < Lazio < Italy)
Palaeographical information Written in red ink in liturgical majuscule.
Bernard (2018: 35-36): "The verses are non-prosodic dodecasyllables. All their endings are paroxytonic, and all of them have a clear caesura after fifth or seventh syllable. But the number of syllables is unstable. Most verses have 12 syllables, but verses 4 and 5 have 14. This becomes understandable if we suppose that Neilos devised his verses on the basis of verse halves, that is, kola of 5 or 7 syllables."
Metre(s) Dodecasyllable
