Ἀπουσία σφῶν, κέρδος ἀργυρεμπόροις·
εἰ γὰρ παρῆσαν, αὐτοφόρτους ὁλκάδας
ὤχοντ' ἂν ἁρπάσαντες αὐτοῖς ἐμπόροις.

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."
