οὐδὲ θάνεν νηοῖο θυώδεος ἔκτοθι Νόννα,
φωνὴν δὲ προτέρην ἥρπασε Χριστὸς ἄναξ
λισσομένης: πόθεεν γὰρ ἐν εὐχωλῇσι τελέσσαι
τόνδε βίον πάσης ἁγνότερον θυσίης.

— Paton edition

Nonna did not even die outside the incense-
breathing church, but Christ took her voice first as
she was praying. For she desired to finish in prayer
this life purer than any sacrifice.
