Ἐπίκλημα: ἔγκλημα. Ἀγαθίας: ἡγούμενοι δὲ ἀδύνατον εἶναι, εὐπρεπέστατα ᾤοντο ἀποσείσασθαι τὸ ἐπίκλημα. καὶ αὖθις: ὁ δὲ Πάκορος, ὁ Παρθυαίων βασιλεύς, καὶ ἄλλα τινὰ ἐπικλήματα ἐπέφερε Τραιανῷ βασιλεῖ, καὶ τὸ δοκεῖν ἐπίκλημα ἐποιεῖτο κατὰ Ῥωμαίων, ὅτι δόξαν ἐντὸς λ# ἡμερῶν μηδετέρους παρὰ τὰ ξυγκείμενα ἐπιτελεῖν, οἱ δὲ οὐ κατὰ τὸ θεσπισθὲν ἐπιτειχίζουσιν.
