O great lord, first son of Zeus, Poseidon,
you who are the most beautiful and strongest of all things
which took origin by Zeus, you who powerfully
rule everything, second only to your father
who is immensely greater than all beings
since heís the only one absolutely ingenerated.
So by you this wide sky, on your fatherís order,
began to be, under which we too are generated from you.
Father, be then always benevolent and propitious to us.
George Gemistos Plethon
