Athena, lady, you who protect and guide the form of the matter

undivided, you are its own

creator after Poseidon of wide majesty

who draw from you the whole form;

you are the cause of all simultaneously generated movements

you repel the unnecessary from everything

and therefore also from us,

and every time we’ll make mistakes like fools, bring us back,

o Goddess, through intelligence, raising our heart to what is appropriate.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
