Apollo, lord, you patron and guide,

of everything in nature, you who trace back everything

to one, and submit the whole itself, so various

so rich in sounds, to a single harmony;

from concordance, you give wisdom

and justice to the souls, the most beautiful things,

and health and beauty to the bodies.

Inspire the desire of divine beauties,

lord, to our souls. Hail, Paian.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
