Τέρμα τέως πέφυκε τῶν γυμνασμάτων,
νέμοντος ἀφθόνως τε τοῖς πᾶσι λόγον
μελισταγήν τε καὶ γλυκὺν παντὸς πότου·
ναὶ μὴν ἀληθῶς κλῆσιν ἐξ ἔργων εὔχε(ται).

Comment Note the pun on the name of the praised author -Aphthonius of Antioch - at verse 2: 'ἀφθόνως'. The last verse has got more than the required twelve syllables, possibly due to the use of an abbreviation: 'εὔχε(ται)'.
