Occurrence 21746
(formerly occ/5601)

κόχλον θαλάττης τὴν βίβλον νομιστέον:
ὥσπερ γὰρ αὔτη πρὸς μεσημβρινὰς φλόγας:
πτύξιν διαστείλασα τὸν κεκρυμμένον:
φαίνει διαυγάζοντα μάργαρον κάτω:
οὕτω νοείσθω δέλτος ἡ προκειμένη:
ἥτις πόθω ζέοντι τῶν θεοφρόνων:
ἀναπτυγεῖσα τὸν νοητὸν τοῦ λόγου:
λάμποντα πᾶσι μαργαρίτην δεικνύει:
ὃν εἴ τις εἰσδὺς εἰς νοημάτων βάθος:
ἐκεῖθεν ἐμπόρευμα τοῦτον λαμβάνει:
οὐκοῦν ὁ τοῖσδε τοῖς λόγοις ἐντυγχάνων:
πολλῶν δι’ αὐτῶν ἐμφορεῖται κρειττόνων:
πολλῶν ἀφράστων ἀξιοῦται θαυμάτων:
