Εἰς ἓν λαβὼν ἅπαντα πολλῷ τῷ πόνῳ,
ἅπερ παριστᾷ δυσχερῶς τὸ πυκτίον,
τέθεικα σαφῆ τοῖς ποθοῦσι μανθάνειν,
ἄμοχθον αὐτοῖς εὐχερῆ διδοὺς χάριν,
πίνακα χειρὶ τοῦ παρόντος βιβλίου
γράψας σαφῆ, κάλλιστον, ἠκριβωμένον.
Ἀφ᾽ οὗ νάμασιν ἀφθονεστάτοις
ἐκρεῖ προφανὴς σὺν Θεῷ ξενοτρόπως,
λυτροῦσα δεινῶν, δυσχερῶν νοσημάτων,
πολλοὺς ῥύπους πλύνουσα τῶν παθημάτων
σοφὸν Γαληνὸν εὐσθενῆ πρὸς τοὺς λόγους
αὐχοῦντος εὑρεῖν εὐφυῆ συγγραφέα
οὗ τὸ κλέος μέγιστον ἀρθὲν ἀσχέτως,
ἅπασιν ἐξέλαμψεν ἀρρητοτρόπως
ἱὲν φαεινὰς τὰς βολὰς τὰς τῶν λόγων
λαμπρῶς, καθαρῶς, εὐπρεπῶς καὶ κοσμίως
ψυχαῖς βροτῶν ἄριστα προσδεδεγμένων,
ὡς αἰγλοειδὴς, ἐκφανής τις φωσφόρος.

Translation(s) In unum cogens omnia labore multo,
quae difficulter exhibet libellus,
exposui clare cupientibus discere,
labore-vacuam ipsis, facilemque praebens gratiam,
indicem scilicet manu praesentis libri
scribens clarum, pulcherrimum, elaboratum.
Ex quo gratia fontibus uberrimis
emanat evidens, deo favente, mirabiliter,
liberans gravibus ac difficilibus morbis,
multisque abluens passionum sordibus
eos qui sapientem Galenum, sermonibus pollentem
gaudent invenire egregium scriptorem,
cujus gloria maxima supra modum elata,
omnibus efflulsit inenarrabili modo,
ejaculans splendida sermonum spicula
lucide, clare, decore, et ornate
animabus hominum optima probantium,
qualis coruscans dum se prodit lucifer.
