Hymn XXV

To Antinous Agathos Daimon

You are the protector of our cities, the protector

of our prosperity, guardian of the grain, Antinous

Agathos Daimon, yet you are also the guardian

of our spirits, the genius and juno, the spark

of divinity within. Grant prosperity to us who need it,

first of the body, then of the soul; grant health and

well-being to us who need it, first of the body,

then of the mind and spirit; grant self-knowledge

to us who need it, Antinous Agathos Daimon,

that the Antinous in us may bless the Antinous in you.
