FIRST MONTHLY HYMN, TO ZEUS

Back

The great Zeus, who is Ianus, father of himself, ancestor

of all things to which he gave origin,

he didnít do anything in a moment,

but since he exists, he made

such things, never staying inactive,

never under his own power, well operating,

as itís properly, since heís the good itself.

Hail, Zeus, supreme king who rules on everything, hail,

you infinitely blissful, hail, generous giver of good things.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
