    36. Ἀρτέμιδος, θυμίαμα μάνναν.

    Κλῦθί μου, ὦ βασίλεια, Διὸς πολυώνυμε κούρη,
    Τιτανίς, βρομία, μεγαλώνυμε, τοξότι, σεμνή,
    πασιφαής, δαιδοῦχε, θεά Δίκτυννα, λοχείη,
    ὠδίνων ἐπαρωγὲ καὶ ὠδίνων ἀμύητε,
    λυσίζωνε, φίλοιστρε, κυνηγέτι, λυσιμέριμνε,
    εὔδρομε, ἰοχέαιρα, φιλαγρότι, νυκτερόφοιτε,
    κληισία, εὐάντητε, λυτηρία, ἀρσενόμορφε,
    Ὀρθίη, ὠκυλόχεια, βροτῶν κουροτρόφε δαῖμον,
    ἀμβροτέρα, χθονία, θηροκτόνε, ὀλβιόμοιρε,
    ἣ κατέχεις ὀρέων δρυμούς, ἐλαφηβόλε, σεμνή,
    πότνια, παμβασίλεια, καλὸν θάλος, αἰὲν ἐοῦσα,
    δρυμονία, σκυλακῖτι, Κυδωνιάς, αἰολόμορφε·
    ἐλθέ, θεὰ σώτειρα, φίλη, μύστηισιν ἅπασιν
    εὐάντητος, ἄγουσα καλοὺς καρποὺς ἀπὸ γαίης
    εἰρήνην τ’ ἐρατὴν καλλιπλόκαμόν θ’ ὑγίειαν·
    πέμποις δ’ εἰς ὀρέων κεφαλὰς νούσους τε καὶ ἄλγη.

    36. Ártæmis
    The Fumigation from Manna.

    Hear me, Jove’s daughter, celebrated queen,
    Bacchian and Titan, of a noble mien:
    In darts rejoicing and on all to shine,
    Torch-bearing Goddess, Dictynna divine;
    O’er births presiding,* and thyself a maid,
    To labour-pangs imparting ready aid:
    Dissolver of the zone and wrinkl’d care,
    Fierce huntress, glorying in the Sylvan war:
    Swift in the course, in dreadful arrows skill’d,
    Wandering by night, rejoicing in the field:
    Of manly form, erect, of bounteous mind,
    Illustrious dæmon, nurse of human kind:
    Immortal, earthly, bane of monsters fell,
    ‘Tis thine, blest maid, on woody hills to dwell:
    Foe of the stag, whom woods and dogs delight,
    In endless youth who flourish fair and bright.
    O, universal queen, august, divine,
    A various form, Cydonian pow’r, is thine:
    Dread guardian Goddess, with benignant mind
    Auspicious, come to Mystic rites inclin’d;
    Give earth a store of beauteous fruits to bear,
    Send gentle Peace, and Health with lovely hair,
    And to the mountains drive Disease and Care.
