623

Chorus Royal lady, august queen of the Persians, pour these libations down to the chambers of the earth, 625while we, in solemn chant, beseech the guides of the dead beneath the earth to be gracious to our prayers.

O holy divinities of the nether world, Earth and Hermes, and you, Lord of the dead, 630send up to the light the spirit from below; for if, beyond our prayers, he knows any further remedy for our distress, he alone of mortals can declare how to bring it to accomplishment.
