Ἡδὺ μὲν τοῖς ὁδεύουσι τέλος τοῦ δρόμου,
ἡδὺ δὲ τοῖς γράφουσι τέλος βιβλίου.
Χάρις δὲ τῷ συντελέστῃ τῶν καλῶν Θεῷ χάρις,
τῷ τὴν βίβλον ταύτην ἀνύσαι δόντι,
τὴν παντὸς λίθου καὶ χρυσοῦ τιμιωτέραν,
ἔχουσαν λόγοις Γρηγορίου τοῦ πάνυ
τοῦ σοφωτάτου τοῦ μέγα κλέος

Genre(s) Scribe-related epigram
Subject(s) Gregorios of Nazianzos < Cappadocia (329 - 25/01/390) - PBW: Gregorios/128/
Comment A rather clumsy attempt at composing a poem, which passes quietly into a prosaic date of the manuscript;
Omont (1892: 4): 'μηνὶ φευρουαρίῳ ζ', ἰνδ. η', τοῦ ἐννακοσιοστοῦ κγ' ἔτους, ἡμέρᾳ πέμπτῃ, ὥρᾳ β'.'
The epigram is not easily readable. The readings of Omont and Kakoulidis differ significantly.
