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

translated by Manuela Simeoni
