FOURTH MONTHLY HYMN, TO THE OLYMPIAN GODS

Back

King Poseidon, the noblest of the great Zeusís children,

you who received from your father the government on the whole creation;

and you, Hera, his pure wife, equally benevolent queen;

Apollo, Artemis, Hephaestus, Bacchus

and Athena; you are the seven most powerful gods

of all others, after the one who rules, supreme, from above;

and you all inhabitants of the Olympus,

parents to all immortal things included the ones into us,

be to us propitious and benevolent.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
