Ἰνοῦς ὦ Μελικέρτα, σύ τε γλαυκὴ μεδέουσα
Λευκοθέη πόντου, δαῖμον ἀλεξίκακε,
Νηρῄδων τε χοροί, καὶ κύματα, καὶ σύ, Πόσειδον,
καὶ Θρήιξ, ἀνέμων πρηΰτατε, Ζέφυρε,

ἵλαοί με φέροιτε, διὰ πλατὺ κῦμα φυγόντα,
σῶον ἐπὶ γλυκερὰν ᾐόνα Πειραέως.

— Paton edition

O Melicertes, son of lno, and thou sea-blue queen of the sea, Leucothea, goddess that avertest evil, and ye Nereids linked in the dance, and ye waves, and thou, Poseidon, and Thracian Zephyr, gentlest of winds, be gracious unto me and bear me, escaping the broad billows, safe to the sweet beach of Piraeus.
