Occurrence 22200
(formerly occ/6077)

πραγματεία ἐκ τῆς μυστικῆς χυμίας:
Ταύτης τῆς βίβλου μέλλοντες μβένην πύλ(ην):
ἔξω τῆς μέθης βιωτικῶν φρωντίδων:
ἣν εὐμενὸς εὔρηται τὸν νοῦν τὸν τίδε:
λύσιν φέρωντες πενίας τῆς πανσχόλου:
εἰ δὲ ἀστόχως καὶ κενὴν δόξαν φέρεις:
ἕξης ἀνέμους ἢ ψυχῆς μάλλον πόνους:
ἄνθρωπε τίμα τὸν ἐν σοῦ πάντα πέλει:
ὅπως δώη σοι καὶ νόημα καὶ λόγον:
μὴ δὲν γὰρ αὐτῆς μὴ δὴν ἄρδην πρὸς δόκα:-

Comment Bandini (1770: 358) and Goldschmidt (1923: 10) present this epigram and the one with incipit 'ἡλιόδωρου γὰρ φιλόσοφου γράψας' as one poem, but the layout and the content show that they are two separate epigrams.

The title is metrical as well.
