Ἀκροπολίτης εὐσεβὴς Κωνσταντῖνος
τὴν δὲ ἀξίαν καὶ μέγας λογοθέτης
ζωῆς ὅρους εἴρηκα καὶ τρόπους τέλους,
οὐ κατ' ἀποκλήρωσιν οὐ πεπρωμένους,
ἀλλ' ὡς προγνώσει τοῦ Θεοῦ τεταγμένους
τόσονδε τῷδε τῷ βίῳ διδοῦ χρόνον
καὶ συμμέτρως, ἄλλῳ δὲ πλατύνει θέλων,
τινῶν δ' ἐπὶ μήκιστον ἐκτείνει βίον.
ἀλλ' οἶδεν ἀλλ' ἔγνωκε τοὺς λόγους μόνος,
ὡς ἐμβατεύων καὶ νεφροῖς καὶ καρδίᾳ
καὶ κρίσιν ἀσύγκριτον ἐν πᾶσιν ἔχων.
