(formerly occ/10510)

Νικολάου Ὑδρουντινοῦ πρός τινα νέον μοιχὸν νοτάριον Μῆναν.
Ἄνω πετᾷς, δύστηνε, λιπὼν τὰ κάτω,
Ἔρωτι τρωθεὶς τῷ θρασεῖ καὶ πυρφόρῳ,
δοκῶν κατοικεῖν τῆς Ἥρης τε τοὺς δόμους
οὓς Ζεὺς ὁδηγὸς τῶν θεῶν ἐξουσίᾳ
ναίειν κατηξίωτο τῆς εἱμαρμένης,
ἀλλ᾿οὐχ ὁρᾷς τὸ χάσμα φεῦ βεβυσμένον
καὶ τὸν ἀτερπῆ χηραμὸν φθισιβρότον
ἐν οἷς πέσες τάχιστα. Τοῦτο γὰρ πρῶτον
καθὼς Ἴκαρος δυστυχὴς παῖς Δαιδάλου
νόθοις ὁ τάλας γαυριαθεὶς τοῖς πτίλοις,
οὗ πτῶμα πανβόητον ἴσχυσε πλέον
μυριαρίθμῳ τῶν βροτῶν πανσπερμίᾳ.
