Greek Original:
Λύσις ὀνείρου Νικηφόρου πατριάρχου ἰαμβικοί. Βόας θεωρεῖν εἰς κακὴν πρᾶξιν φέρει. Νεκροὶ βόες δηλοῦσι τοὺς λιμοῦ χρόνους.
Note:
Adler notes (p. xvi) that the Suda in several places attributes dream-interpretations to the patriarch Nicephorus (mentioned at iota 84), although in fact they are not found in the published works of Nicephorus but in the Onirocritica attributed to Astrampsychus (alpha 4251). See theta 11 for further citations of the Onirocritica.
