Prayer to Hera for Aid

Close beside me now as I pray appearing,
Lady Hera, gracious in all your majesty,
you whom the Atreídai invoked to help them,
glorious princes,
while they were completing their many labors,
first at Ilion, and then on the ocean sailing for this island:
they hadn’t power to finish their journey till they called on you,
on the god of strangers Zeus, and on Thyónë’s delightful son:
now I too entreat you,
O goddess, help me as in the old days.
