Glorious children of Zeus, who is the being in itself and generated all,

you rulers, who lead us with justice,

may we consider you our guides

and follow the right laws you love

for what we can, the only ones to well regulate our lives.

But, Gods, you who address the mind that leads us

and that you put on us similar to yourselves,

let us lead our life well in everything

and chant with you the supreme Zeus.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
