This article contains a translation into English of the epigrams of the renowned thirteenth-century clergyman and later Metropolitan of Naupaktos, Ioannes Apokaukos. These epigrams mainly originated during Apokaukos' training in Constantinople and reflect important aspects of his experiences in this period shortly before the fall of Constantinople before the Fourth Crusade. The article introduces Apokaukos, gives some background on the so-called 'holy epigram' and then introduces each of the epigrams. The English translations of the epigrams follow on the preamble.
