Artemis lady, you who lead the diverse nature

and protect her: in facts, you received a unique whole

and divided one thing from another as much as possible

in as much species as possible and the species in individuals,

and then the entire in parts and limbs; you give,

by separating the inferior parts, to the souls force

and prudence, and strength and integrity

to the bodies. But, lady, allow us to flee from every infamous thing

and lead well our life through various situations.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
