Τῶν πρωτοτύπων οὐρανοῦ κινημάτων
καὶ τῶν ἑν αὐτῷ προσφυῶν παθημάτων
εὕροις παρ᾽ ἡμῖν εἰκόνας κεκρυμμένας·
ὁ νοῦς γὰρ ἡμῖν, οἷα λαμπρὸς φωσφόρος
τὸν ἥλιόν πως εἰκονίζει πανσόφως.
Title(s) Στίχοι ὅτι ἀναλογεῖ ό νοῦς μὲν τῷ ἡλίῳ, ἡ ψυχὴ τῇ σελήνῃ και ἡ σάρξ τῇ γῇ · ἐξ ὧν δή, νοός, ψυχῆς και σαρκός, συνιστάμενος ὁ ἄνθρωπος σώζει τύπον τοῦ σύμπαντος
