ἡ βίβλος ἥδε ἣν σὺ ὁρᾶς ὦ φίλ(ε),
ρήσις τὲ (ἐστὶ) τῆς τοῦ θ(εο)ῦ σωφί(ας),

εὐαγγέλι(ον) οἱ τεσσαρεις συνγράφουν,
ματθέος, μάρκ(ος) λου(κᾶς) καὶ ιω(άννης)
σὺν τούτ(οις) γράφη αὐτὸς λουκ(ᾶς) τὰς πράξεις,
ἃς καὶ ἔπραξαν οἱ μαθηταὶ
ἰάκωβος ἰούδας τε ὁ ζηλωτης
καὶ πέτρος, ἰω(άννης) εὐαγγελιστῆς
καθολικὰς πάντ(α) ὁμοῦ συνγράφουν
(...)(ον) δὲ καὶ γὰρ πάλ(ιν) ὁ μ(έ)γ(ας) παύλος
ὁ διδάσκαλος πασης τῆς οἰκουμένης
καὶ ὁ δα(υί)δ τε τὸ ἆσμα τῶν ἀσμάτων
ὅλα ταῦτα κατἔχει ἡ βίβλος ἤδε.
