Εἰς τὸν τῆς βίβλου δεσπότην· πωλιτιανοῦ
 
ἥδε βίβλος τίνος ἐστι· νέου τινός, ὃς καλὸς ὄψιν,
σῶμα δὲ ῥωμαλέος. καὶ γὰρ τέχνη τε βίῃ τε
ἀθλεύων πάντεσσι μεταπρέπει ἠιθέοισιν·
ἰπποσύνῃ καὶ ὅπλοισι μέγ’ ἔξοχος· οὐκ ἀμελεῖ δὲ
οὐδὲ βίβλων, σοφίην ἀσκῶν διδυμάονι γλώττῃ
πρᾶος, ἐλευθέριος, γλυκὺς, οὐκ ἀπροσήγορος, εὔφρων·
εἰπὲ γένος· ταγῶν· ἀρκεῖ τάδε· τὸν Γοίδωνα
εἴ πας ἀνικήτοιο πατρὶς γόνον, ἡγεμονῆα
Οὐρβίνου μεγάλοιο, θεοῖς ἐναλίγκιον ἄνδρα:-
-: εὐτυχῶς τῷ δεσπότῃ:-
