Contextual information The epigram is preceded by a title, in black ink, added by a certain Falconius: 'Exastichum est hoc epigramma: exametro pentametroque constans: | et pulcherrimam profecto de hominum uita pensitationem continens: +'.

Comment Young (1908: 350) states that the epigram counts 'seven rubricated lines of Greek verse). However, the related type counts only six lines, as we expect for a poem in elegiac couplets.
