First I call on you, daughter of Zeus, immortal Athena,  and on your sister, Artemis, guardian of our earth, who sits on her glorious throne above the circle of our market-place, and on far-shooting Apollo: oh shine forth for me, my three-fold help against death!  If ever before you drove a fiery pest from our borders to stop ruin rushing upon our city, come now also!
