(formerly occ/4361)

Τίς σοφίης ἐπιάρτια μέτρα | ἐσήλασεν οἷα
γρηγόριος τῆς τε | κρείττον ἡδ' ὁλοοῦ·
τίς βροντῆς γόνου ἄλλος ἐπέ|λαχεν οὔνομ​' ἀπ' οὔρας:
καὶ χθονίοις κήρυξ ἔπλετο | ὑψιβόης
τρισοκλεοῦς θεότητος ὁμοίης | πάντοθεν ἴσης
ἀφραδέων δὲ πάλιν αἱρέσεων | ὀλετήρ
ἀλλ' ὦ μύστα θεοῖο μακάρτατε | σῆσι λιτῆσιν·
εύθυτάτως δίεπε πρόσφυγα | σὸν πενιχρόν·
ἄζυγα σαχακι(ον) ·:· | παθέων καθύπερθεν ἀείρ(ας)·
ἀμπλακίης τὲ ῥῦπον ψυχικ(ὸν) ἐκκαθάρ(ας)·
ὅστις μειλιχίοις ἐπέσεσι τεοῖς φρέν(ας) ἡσθεὶς,·
τήνδε τέτευχε πόθωι | βύβλον αριπρεπέα+

Palaeographical information Verses nine to twelve differ from the previous verses: the writing is messier, the ink darker, and the verses are written under both columns rather than under the column on the right. However, on the basis of their content, quality, style and structure, it can be argued that the twelve verses form a whole (cf. Demoen - Somers 2016: 206-207).
