And there is a thing such as I have not heard of on Asian ground,  nor as ever yet born in the great Dorian isle of Pelops: a plant unconquered, self-renewing, causing terror to destroying enemies.  It greatly flourishes in this land—the gray-leafed olive, nurturer of children. Youth cannot harm it by the ravages of his hand, nor can any who lives with old age. For the sleepless eye  of Zeus Morios watches over it, and gray-eyed Athena.
