Texts

ὁ πρὶν ἀλωόμενος καὶ ἀνέστιον ἴχνος ἐλαύνων,
εἴτ᾽ ἀφ᾽ ὁδοιπορίης, εἴτ᾽ ἀπὸ ναυτιλίης,
ἐνθάδε νῦν προσιὼν στῆσον, ξένε, σὸν πόδα δεῦρο,
ναιετάειν ἐθέλων, οἶκον ἕτοιμον ἔχων.

εἰ δέ με καὶ τίς ἔτευξεν ἀνακρινέοις, πολιῆτα
Εὐλόγιος, Φαρίης ἀρχιερεὺς ἀγαθός.

— Paton edition

Stranger, who formerly on your arrival by land or
by sea wandered about with homeless feet, approach
now and stay your steps here, where, if you wish to
dwell, you will find a lodging all ready. But if you,
citizen, demand who made me, it was Eulogius,
the good bishop of Alexandria.
