Father Bacchus, parent of all souls provided with reason,

be it the souls of the sky Gods, or the Daemonsí,

or ours, after Poseidon the lord,

you who are the cause of the movement led by the love for what is good

and by the ambition to what is best,

allow us, every time we leave the good

and divine acting, with unreasonable mind,

to be immediately brought back through reason

and not to act like fools for long regarding the good things around us.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
