(formerly occ/8940)

Τὸ μὲν παρὸν σπούδασμα τῶ βίω πρέπον,
προκείσεται (γὰρ) τοῖς ἀγαθοῖς τὴν φύσιν,
θαυμαστὸν ἀρχέτυπον ἀνδρὸς ὀλβίου.
φιλῆς δὲ μετρεῖν οὐ(ρα)νοῦ πλάτος θέλων,
ἆρ‘ οὐκ ἂν εἰς ἔγκλημα λειφθείη θράσους;
πλὴν εἰ σχέσις πέπεικε τολμᾶν τοὺς λόγους,
σοφὸς δικαστὴς, οὐ κρινεῖ τοῦτο θράσος :-
