Lycean Lord, would that the shafts from your bent bow's string of woven gold might [205] go forth in their might, our champions in the face of the foe, and the flashing fires of Artemis too, with which she darts through the Lycian hills. I call him whose locks are bound with gold, [210] who is named with the name of this land, ruddy Bacchus to whom Bacchants cry, to draw near with the blaze of his shining torch, [215] our ally against the god unhonored among the gods.
