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
