Βωμὸν Ἀριστοτέλης ἐνιδρύσατο τόνδε Πλάτωνος,
ἀνδρός, ὃν οὐδ’ αἰνεῖν τοῖσι κακοῖσι θέμις
ὃς μόνος ἢ πρῶτος θνητῶν κατέδειξεν ἐναργῶς,
οἰκείῳ τε βίῳ καὶ μεθόδοισι λόγων,
ὡς ἀγαθός τε καὶ εὐδαίμων ἅμα γίγνεται ἀνήρ,
οὐ νῦν δ' ἔστι λαβεῖν οὐδενὶ ταῦτά ποτε.

Aram Aristoteles fundavit hancce Platonis,

qui solus aut primus mortalium demonstravit luculenter

bonum et felicem simul fleri virum:
non nunc autem est capere ulli ista unquam'.
