εἰς εἰκόνα Θεοδώρου Ἰλλουστρίου καὶ δὶς ἀνθυπάτου, ἐν ᾐ̔̂ γέγραπται παρὰ τοῦ ἀρχαγγέκου δεχόμενος τὰς ἀξίας ἐν Ἐφέσῳ

On a picture of Theodorus the Illustrious and twice Pro-consul, in which he is shown receiving the insignia of office from the Archangel in Ephesus

Forgive us, Ο Archangel, for picturing thee, for
thy face is invisible ; this is but an offering of men. For by thy grace Theodorus hath his girdle of a Magister, and twice won for his prize the Proconsular chair. The picture testifies to his gratitude, for in return he expressed the image of thy beauty in colours.
