On the Great Praetorium when newly decorated

Texts

κόσμον Ἰουστῖνος βασιλεὺς ῥυπόωντα καθήρας
καὶ τὰ μέγιστα Δίκης ἠγλάισεν τεμένη:

σοῖς δὲ πόνοις, Δομνῖνε, κατηφέα νύκτα διώκεις
ἐκ Θέμιδος μεγάρων, ἐκ βιοτῆς μερόπων.

— Paton edition

The Emperor Justin,¹ clearing away its begrimed
decorative work, brightened up the chief Law Court,
and thou, Domninus,² by thy labours, expellest
melancholy night from the halls of Themis and the
life of mortals.
