|Contextual information||The epigram closes a prose colophon and is followed by 'ἀμήν'.|
|Comment||Reworking of a known theme into a poem with two different metres.
Boeten-Janse (2018: 87): The last two lines of this occurrence, if read without synizesis, consist of an octasyllabic colon before, and a heptasyllabic colon after, the caesura. In other words, they would result in two decapentasyllabic verses with strong caesurae after the eighth syllable. However, if read with synizesis (‘καὶ ὥσπερ’ = ‘κι ͜ὥσπερ’ and ‘τοιούτῳ’ = ‘τοιο͜ύτῳ’), the same lines would again scan like decatetrasyllables, with a heptasyllabic colon on either side of the caesura at B7. Given the prevalent stress pattern of the first colon (X́XX́XX́XX), it makes more sense to read both lines as decatetra- instead of decapentasyllables."
