O lord Pluto, head of human nature

and its protector, you who received this task from Zeus himself

you who have, all in one, the faculties that rise separately in us

and in us can be found, rule well everything for us

down here, always raising us from this place.

Around you the heroes, who have a nature better than ours,

and the other friends of ours, beautiful and good.

Kore is with you, the propitious goddess of Tartarus,

who binds our mortal part to us as long as itís necessary; be propitious.

George Gemistos Plethon

translated by Manuela Simeoni
