(formerly occ/6331)

Τῆς μουσικῆς ἔλεξε Βακχεῖος Γέρων
τόνους, τρόπους, μέλη τε καὶ συμφωνίας.
τούτῳ συνῳδὰ Διονύσιος γράφων
τὸν παμμέγιστον δεσπότην Κωνσταντῖνον
σοφὸν ἐραστὴν δείκνυσι τεχνημάτων.
τὸν τῶν ἁπάντων γὰρ σοφῶν παιδευμάτων
ἐφευρετήν τε καὶ δότην πεφηνότα
ταύτης προσῆκεν οὐδαμῶς εἶναι ξένον.
