Ἐνταῦθ᾿ ἀναγέγραπται τοῖς βουλομένοις
πρὸς τὴν κατ᾿ ἐχθρῶν ἀποδύσασθαι μάχην
ἥνπερ ἐξεικόνισεν ὁ πλάστης πάντων
ἐν τῷ τρισσῷ πολέμῳ τῶ τοῦ βελίαρ,
ἡδονήν τε δόξαν καὶ χρήματα πάντα
δώσειν ὑπισχνούμενος εἴπερ ἀκούσῃ
πέσει πρὸς κυνήσειται ἔδει γαίης,
ἥνπερ οἱ ἀπόστολοι παραλαβόντες,
τῶν πατέρων ὅμιλος ἱεραρχῶν τε
πᾶσα ἡ ὁμήγυρις τῶν θειοτάτων
ταύτην εὐ ἐχάραξαν πίναξι θείαις
τοῖς μετ’ αὐτούς γε τὴν ὁδὸν ταύτην εἴπερ
βαίνειν ἐθελήσωσι σὺν ὅλῳ πόθῳ
πλάνην μηδαμῶς ὑποπτεύειν ἐν ταύτῃ
ὡς βασιλικωτάτην ὡς θείαν τρίβον
ἶσα παρεκκλίνασεν τῶν ἑκατέρων
τὰ δεξιά τε καὶ εὐώνυμα πάντα.
