Texts

ἥ τε Σάμου μεδέουσα καὶ λάχες Ἴμβρασον Ἥρη,

δέξο γενεθλιδίους, πότνα, θυηπολίας,

μόσχων ἱερὰ ταῦτα, τά σοι πολὺ φίλτατα πάντων,

εἰ ὅσιοι μακάρων θεσμὸν ἐπιστάμεθα



εὔχετ᾽ ἐπισπένδων τάδε Μάξιμος: ἡ δ᾽ ἐπένευσεν
ἔμπεδα: Μοιράων δ᾽ οὐκ ἐμέγηρε λίνα.

— Paton edition

"Hera, who watchest over Samos and whose is
Imbrasus, accept, gracious goddess, this birthday sacrifice, these heifer victims, dearest of all to thee, if we priests know the law of the blessed gods." Thus Maximus prayed as he poured the libation, and she granted his prayer without fail, nor did the spinning Fates grudge it.
