Texts

εὐμενέως Πρώτοιο δεδεγμένος ὄργια βίβλου
φιλοπόνου γραφίδεσσι δεδειγμένα βένθεα μύθων,
κοιράνου Αὐσονίοισι διδάσκαλε, ἵλαος εἴης.

— Paton edition

Teacher of the ruler of Rome, be gracious to me,
accepting kindly the mysteries of the book of Protus,
the deep words revealed by the pen of Philoponus.¹

Comment

#1

Paton Edition: 1 Protus appears to be author, Philoponus the scribe of the book, but all is mysterious.
