Palaeographical information These two verses are visually separated from the preceding 10-verse epigram, which usually counts 12 verses, inc. 'Ἔσπευσαν ἄλλοι χρυσὸν εὑρεῖν ἐν βίῳ'. The verses of this occurrence (especially the last one) bear similarity to the final verses of that 12-verse epigram.

Metre(s) Dodecasyllable
Genre(s) Scribe-related epigram
