|“|| Muse, sing of Artemis, sister of the far-shooter, Parthenos the virgin who delights in arrows, who was fostered with Apollo. She waters her horses from Meles deep in reeds, and swifty drives her all-golden chariot through Smyrna to vine-clad Claros where Apollo god of the silver bow, sits waiting for far-shooting delighter in arrows.
And so hail to you, Artemis, in my song and to all goddesses as well. Of you first I sing and with you I begin; now that I have begun with you, I will turn to another song."''
|~ Homeric Hymn 9 to Artemis|
