Hear me, illustrious father, daemon famed,
Great Saturn’s offspring, and Sabazius named;
Inserting Bacchus, bearer of the vine,
And founding God, within thy thigh divine,
That when mature, the Dionysian God
Might burst the bands of his concealed abode,
And come to sacred Tmolus, his delight,
Where Ippa dwells, all beautiful and bright.
Blessed Phrygian God, the most august of all,
And aid thy mystics, when on thee they call.
