O daughter of Leto, Dictynna of the mountains, to your hall, to the golden walls of your temple with beautiful pillars, [130] I, the servant of the holy key-holder, bend my holy virgin steps. For I have left the towers and walls of Hellas, famous for horses, and [135] Europe with its forests, my father's home.

I have come. What is the news? What is troubling you? Why have you brought me, brought me to the shrine, you who are the daughter of Atreus' son, master of a thousand ships and ten thousand soldiers, [140] who came to the towers of Troy with a famous fleet?
