1021

Athena I approve the words of your invocation, and will escort you by the light of gleaming torches to the places below and beneath the earth, with the attendant women who guard my image in duty bound. 1025For the eye of the whole land of Theseus will come forth, a glorious troop of children, matrons and a band of old women.

Dress them honorably in robes dyed scarlet, and let the torches' light move on, so that this kindly company of visitors to our land 1030may show itself afterwards in blessings that bring prosperity to men.
