To the First-Born, to Mother Earth, to Cybela, daughter of Demeter.
Zeus, Air, Sun. Fire conquers all.
Avatars of fortune and Phanes. Moirai that remember all. You, O illustrious daimon.
Father who subdues all. Compensation.
Air, fire, Mother, Nestis, night, day,
Fasting for seven days. Zeus who sees all. Always. Mother, hear my prayer. Fine sacrifices.
Sacrifices. Demeter. Fire. Zeus. The Underground Girl.
Hero. Light to the intelligence. The adviser seized the Girl.
Earth. Air. To the intelligence.
– Orphic tablet from Thurii, 4th to 3rd century BCE
