Στίχοι δημώδεις. Λογισμὸς, τῆς Ἑρμογένους τέχνης,
τῶν στάσεων εὑρέσεων τῶν ἰδεῶν μεθόδων.
Ζητήσεις τὲ καὶ λογισμοὶ ταῦτα, τοῦ Ἑρμογένους
ὧν ὑπισχνεῖται μὲν εἰπεῖν ἢ λέγει δ᾽ ἢ οὐ λέγει
ἐν οἷς τινὲς χοιρόφρονες τὸν Τζέτζην αἰτιῶνται
τὸν Ἑρμογένη λέγοντες πάντα καλῶς συγγράψαι
καὶ περὶ ὧν ὑπέσχετο πάντα καλῶς διδάξαι,
Τζέτζην οὐ συνηκέναι δὲ ὡς εἰ ἐγὼ ἐκεῖνοι,
Τζέτζης ἦσαν ἐκεῖνοι δὲ τῷ ἐναντίῳ τρόπῳ.
Καὶ δὴ σκοπεῖτε σύμπαντες τίς χοιριᾷ κιρκαίως,
ὁ Τζέτζης ἢ οἱ βούβαλοι καὶ χοιροκράνου γένους;
Ἐντεῦθεν ἐκ τῶν στάσεων λοιπόν μοι καταρκτέον.

Translation(s) Popular verses. Audit of Hermogenes’ art,
Legal issues, Invention, Style, Method.
These are queries and audits of what Hermogenes
promises to say, but then either says or does not say,
for which some pig-minded folks accuse Tzetzes,
saying that Hemogenes wrote everything well
and taught well everything he promised,
and that Tzetzes did not grasp it, as if I were they
and they, by contrast, were Tzetzes; but they were the opposite.
Now please, look everyone, who is like a pig of Circe,
is it Tzetzes or the buffaloes of the pigheaded race?
Let me then start now from the Issues.
