Zeus the greatest, who are superior to all other Gods,

because you are the most ancient creator and father of all;

you too, Gods all, be Gods of the Olympus

or Gods of the Tartarus, Gods of the sky or Gods of the earth

allow us, if we make an unacceptable mistake, or perform a wicked action,

being so lowered by this, to get closer to you, excellent,

so that our life can become a blissful one. O Zeus,

you above all, you who are the most powerful of all,

you who are both the first and the last good.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
