Hera, venerable goddess, daughter of the great Zeus,

you whose husband is Poseidon, who is

the beauty itself, mother of the Gods living in the sky,

origin of the matter, you who give place to all the force

of the species, and among others,

to the force that leads towards virtue and all beauty,

you who establish laws according to which for everyone

there are both numbers and eternity: so grant us

to live well, and lead us, propitious, to virtue.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
