Hear me swift Hermes, fleet-footed messenger,
Pray you fetch stern Dike to the fore,
And release for us cruel Ares, slayer of men.
Call before us the bloodthirsty father of tears and breaker of cities,
That we may beseech him, mighty bane of mortals.
Hear our prayer, o Succoror of Themis,
You who art gold broker of corpses.
Visit yourself upon the brother of Yana, together with your mighty host.
Feast upon his blood as is your wont, and visit upon him your terrible sons,
Fierce Phobos and terrible Deimos.
And let his flesh be rent and his soul torn,
His keeping left to the Erinyes, foul seekers of the wretched.
Give ear to your father, Zeus, who may judge him,
And let his place be Tartaros, foul place of the damned.
Deliver justice upon him, mighty Ares,
And let us feel solace in his torment.
