φαιδρὸν Ἰουστινιανὸς ἄναξ ἐμὲ χῶρον ἐγείρει,
ἠελίῳ παρέχων θάμβος ἀνερχομένῳ.
οὔποτε γὰρ τοιοῦτον ἐπὶ χθονὸς ἔδρακε κάλλος
ὑψόθεν οὐρανίην οἶμον ἐπερχόμενος.

— Paton edition

Justinian, the emperor, built me the bright house,
a marvel for the sun to view at his rising. For never
before when he mounted his celestial path did he
see such beauty on earth.
