On the Portico of the Basilica in Constantinople

Texts

ἔπρεπε σοί, Θεόδωρε, Τύχης ἐυκίονα νηὸν;
ἔργου κοσμῆσαι θαύματι τοσσατίου,
δῶρά τε κυδήεντα πορεῖν χ;χρυσάσπιδι Ῥώμῃ,
ἥ ς1᾽ Ὕπατον τεῦξεν, καὶ τρισέπαρχον ὁρᾷ.

— Paton edition

It beseemed thee, Theodorus, to adorn the columned
temple of Fortune¹ by such a wonderful work, and to
give splendid gifts to Constantinople, city of the
golden shield, which made thee consul² and sees thee
for the third time prefect.
