τοῦ σοφωτάτου φιλῆ στίχοι ἐγκωμιαστικοὶ εἰς τὸν ἀλέξανδρον τὸν βασιλέα : ·
 
Ἃ μὲν (...) χρόνος·
ὃ δὲ χρόνος δίδωσιν ἁρπάζει φθόνος·
(...) τῶν πόνων,
ψύχη μὲν ἀπέφηνε παντὸς βελτίων·
χρόνος δὲ λαβὼν (...) τοῦ φθόνου·
αἱ γὰρ ἀγαθαὶ τῶν φιλιστόρων φύσεις·
λαθεῖν ἀγεννῶς (...) τὸν μέγαν·
ἐπείπερ αἱ μὲν, δεξιοῦνται τοῖς λόγοις·
αἱ δὲ χρόαις γράφουσι τὸν στεφανίτην·
παγκόσμιος γὰρ εὐτυχεῖ τοῦτον πίναξ·
τοῖς ἀνδραγαθήμασιν ἐστηλωμένον·
ἔγωγε μὴν τὸν ἄνδρα καὶ πρὶν θαυμάσας·
νῦν μᾶλλον ὑμνῶ τῆς πολυζήλου τύχης·
ἔτι γὰρ ἡβῶν, τῶν γερόντων ἐκράτει·
κ(αὶ) χρημάτων ἤσκησεν ὑπεροψίαν·
ἀρχὴν ἑαυτῶ παγγενῆ θησαυρίσας·
καὶ πταιστὸς ὢν ἄπταιστος εὐθὺς εὑρέθη·
καὶ γυμνάσας τὸ σῶμα τοῖς ὑπὲρ φύσιν·
μόνος τὸ πᾶν κατέσχεν ἀπτέρω τάχει·
αὐτῶ δὲ τῆς γῆς οὐκ ἀποχρώσης ὅλης,
κ(αὶ) δευτέραν δήπουθεν ἐζήτει κτίσιν·
κ(αὶ) εἶχεν αἰθὴρ εὐμενεῖς ἀπροσμάχους,
ἐκ μηχανῆς ἂν εἷλε κἀκείνους τάχα : ·
