ὅταν βλέπω σε, προσκυνῶ, καὶ τοὺς λόγους,
τῆς παρθένου τὸν οἶκον ἀστρῷον βλέπων
εἰς οὐρανὸν γάρ ἐστί σου τὰ πράγματα,
Ὑπατία σεμνή, τῶν λόγων εὐμορφία,

ἄχραντον ἄστρον τῆς σοφῆς παιδεύσεως.

— Paton edition

Revered Hypatia,¹ ornament of learning, stainless
star of wise teaching, when I see thee and thy dis-
course I worship thee, looking on the starry house
of the Virgin ; for thy business is in heaven.
