Ἀφεὶς ἁπάσας τὰς δυσόσμους βορβόρους,
αἷς ὁ βδελυκτὸς βορβοροῖ Τζέτζου βίβλον
καὶ θηλικοὺς ἄκουε νῦν ἅπας λόγους·
κἂν πῦρ κεραυνῶν τοῦτον οὐκ ἐφεψάλου
ὁρῶν τόσον γράφοντι τῷ Τζέτζῃ πόνον.

Tag(s)
Translation(s) After taking away the smelly soil,
through which the abominable man soils Tzetzes’ book
- and yes, listen everyone, it’s in the feminine,
even though you are blasting with fire, do not burn it to ashes,
seeing how much pain has been caused to Tzetzes who is writing.
