On the Porphyry Column in the Philadelphion

Texts

εὔνους μὲν βασιλεῖ Μουσήλιος: ἔργα βοῶσιν
δημόσια: σθεναρὴν πράγματα πίστιν ἔχει.
Μουσεῖον Ῥώμῃ δ᾽ ἐχαρίσσατο, καὶ βασιλῆος
εἰκόνα θεσπεσίην ἐντὸς ἔγραψε δόμων,

τιμὴν μουσοπόλοις, πόλεως χάριν, ἐλπίδα κούρων,
ὅπλα δὲ τῆς ἀρετῆς, χρήματα τοῖς ἀγαθοῖς.

— Paton edition

Muselius is a well-wisher of the Emperor. Public
works proclaim it ; the force of facts is strong. He
presented Constantinople with a Museum and with a
splendid painting of the sovereign inside, an honour
to poets, an ornament of the city, the hope of youth,
the instrument of virtue, the wealth of good men.
