+ Τέλος ὧδε πέφηκε ταύτης τῆς δέλτου·
Ξένοι μὲν ἀγάλλον|ται, ἀθροῖν π(ατ)ρίδα·
Καὶ οἱ πλοῦν θαλάττιον, πλέοντες πά|λιν·
Λιμὴν ἡ αὐτῶν, ἔφεσις ἔστιν οἷμε·
Δούλων ἐπιθύμημα, μὴ | δούλος εἶναι·
Πτωχοῖς φιλοπλούτοις τε, πλουτεῖν τα κόσμου·
Ἀδόξους ἀνάγεσται φθάρτην εἰς δόξαν·
Τὸν αὐτὸν δὴ τρόπον τε, πιστεύ(ειν) | ἔχω.
Καὶ τοὺς βίβλον γράφοντας τὴν οἱ ἀνοῦν γε·
Τὸ τέρμα αὐτῆς, θε|άσασθαι πληροῦντα·
Χαρᾶς ἡδονῆς, εὐφροσύνης ἁπάσης·
καγὼ | τοιγαροῦν νικόλαος, τάχα καὶ ἀναγνώστης·
Τὸ παρὸν βιβλίον τε, | μαργαρίται τοῦ χρυσοστόμου·
Συλλέξας ὀργάνωσα, πόνω καὶ μόχθω·
Εἰς θ(εο)ῦ τε αἴνεσιν (καὶ) ὑμνωδίαν·
Πεπλήρωτο δὲ, ἐν χρόνοις τοῖς τοῦ | κόσμου·
Χιλίων ἐξάπλωμα ἐκατοντάδων·
Ἐννακοσίοις ἅμα | δὲ, εἰκοστῶ καὶ τετάρτω·
Ἰνδικτιῶνος (καὶ) αὐτῆς δὲ θ(ης)'·
Εν μην(ὶ) ἀ|πριλλίω τε, ἐπτά δε καὶ δεκάτ(ης)
– Ω χ(ριστ)έ μου σῶσον με, τὸν σὸν οἰ|κέτην·
Πρεσβείαις τῆς τεκούσης σε, καὶ σοφοῦ χρυσοστόμου +
