Πεπείραμαι κυροῦν, ἐν βραχέσι πλεῖστα,
ῥήτορσι γὰρ κάλλος συντομία ἔπους.
Ῥητρεύσεών σου ὡς ἔφης τὰς ἐκφράσεις
χωλὰς τὸ πῶς νοοῦντες εἰπεῖν οὐκ ἔχω,
ἡμείψαμέν που ἢ κεκόψαμεν πάλιν.
Ἀλλʹ, ὡς πατήρ, σύγγνωθι φιλτάτοις τέκνοις,
θαρρεῖν γάρ ἐστιν οὐ κακίζειν τοῦτό σε.

Translation(s) In paucis plurima exprimere conatus sum;
Eloquentiae enim candidatis probatur in narratione brevitas.
Orationum tuarum, ut vocas, descriptiones
Mutilas, dicere non pussum, quomodo excogitantes
Mutaverimus alicubi, vel contra secuerimus.
Sed tu, ut pater ignosce carissimis filiis;
Fiducia enim est, te id non improbaturum.
