Γυμνησίων ἔθιμα τὰ πρὸς τοὺς γάμους
εἰ τοῖς καθ' ἡμᾶς συντετήρηντο χρόνοις,
κἀγὼ πρὸς αὐτοὺς ἀσμένως ἐνηξάμην,
καὶ ταῦτα δυσθάλαττος ὢν πάντων πλέον
καὶ τρίχα λευκὴν ὑπὸ τοῦ χρόνου φέρων·
τὰ νυμφίων δ' οὐκ ἄν ποθ' εἱλόμην γέρα,
κἂν Τυνδαρίδος ἐπλέκοντο παστάδ<α>.

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."
