Τοῦ Δόξα πατρὶ βίβλος εἰμὶ τοῦ πάνυ.
Τῆς τῆς παλαῖας ἧςδε καὶ θείας βίβλου
ἀρχὴ πίνακος ἱστορικῆς ἐνθάδε
πέφυκεν ἤδη συγγραφεῖσα σὺν πόθῳ
πλείστῳ χαρεντῶς, ὡς θέμις, ἄρτι φίλοι.
Εἰς δόξαν, εἰς ἔπαινον Ἰησοῦ λόγου
τοῦ παντάνακτος καὶ βασιλέως μόνου.

Comment Vassis (2005: 791), based on Miller (1886: 30), refers to John Doxopatres. The epigram, however, seems to accompany the work of Neilos Doxopatres, see, for instance, De Vos (2011: 245-246).

The poem can be found in the 16th-century manuscript Biblioteca Nacional 4591 (f. 1r) (cf. Miller 1886: 29-56) and in Vat. gr. 1426 (f. 288) (cf. Rabe: 1908). According to De Vos (2011: 245, n. 1; 246-248), the epigrams in these late manuscripts are copied from a lost 13th-century manuscript from Messina.
