Ὅρα· κολάζει καὶ µῦθος τὰ τῆς µέθης·
τοὺς γὰρ παροίνους προσγενεῖς ὁ Λαπίθης
κτείνει, γυναιμανοῦντας ἐν μέσοις πότοις
παροινίας ἔπαθλον εὑρόντας φόνον.

Comment Mazzucchi (1995: 254-255) identifies the author as Niketas Choniates. Bértola (2021: 42) is more cautious: "Nothing invites the rejection of the postulated authorship of Niketas Choniates, but there is not enough evidence either to accept it without prudent hesitation."
