|Critical Notes||Lauxtermann (2003: 203 n. 16): "In a paper presented at the International Byzantine Congress in Paris in 2001, G. Papagiannis suggested to change ὦ (v. 3) into ᾧ, “for whom (gentleness is the hallmark of power)”.|
Cicada among the prophets, lyre of the Spirit, filling the whole world with thy melody: o gentleness, the hallmark of power.
|Comment||Lauxtermann (2003: 203 n. 16): "The epigram can be found in Par. Suppl. gr. 690 (s. XII), fol. 116v, and Par. gr. 1630 (s. XIV), fol. 166r; the latter ms. omits the last verse". In both of these manuscript the epigram does not function as a book epigram.|
