Δαυϊτικὴ πέφυκα δέλτος ᾀσμάτων
φέρουσα τῷ γράψαντι φέρτατον κλέος,
θεόγραφον χάριν δὲ τῷ κεκτημένῳ
καὶ μανθάνουσιν εὐκλεᾶ τὴν καρδίαν,
καὶ τοῖς βλέπουσιν ἐνθεεστάτους νόας·
ψάλλουσι δ' ᾆσμα πνεύματος χορηγίαν.

Comment The epigram also occurs in Vat. Palat. gr. 367 (f. 139r), but not as a paratext on the Psalter (ed. Constantinides - Browning 1993: 155).
Constantinides-Browning (1993: 155) attributes the poem to John Geometres, but it is not clear on which evidence this is based.
