Ὢ πόσα δραμῶν οὐδὲν εὕρειν τῷ βίῳ
πλὴν τὴν λάρνακα τὴν λύσιν εἰκόνος·
τάφος μαραίνει καὶ καλύπτει με λίθος·
ἡ γῆ λαμβάνει τὸν ἐξ αὐτῆς τεχθέντα·
Καλλίστῳ μέμνησο τῷ ταπεινῷ καὶ ξένῳ
τὸν έκ πόθου γράψαντα τὴν βίβλον ταύτην·
εὔχεσθε τῷ ξένῳ τὸν τῆς Ταρσοῦ
χρειματήσαντα ποιμένα τῷ ταπεινῷ
καὶ ἰδιώτῃ τὴν γνώσιν ἀλλ᾽ οὐδὲ τὴν πίστιν.
