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
