Chorus
Hail, Queen of the land of Argos, child of Tyndareus, [990] and sister of those two noble sons of Zeus who dwell in the fiery heavens among the stars, whose honored office it is to save mortals in the high waves. Welcome, I give you worship equal to the blessed gods [995] for your wealth and great prosperity. Now is the time to pay our court to your fortunes. Welcome, o queen.
