Hear, hear before ascending to Lord Helios Mithras
Be gracious to me, O Providence and Psyche, as I write these mysteries handed down not for gain but for instruction; and for an only child I request immortality, O initiates of this our power. Furthermore, it is necessary for you, O daughter, to take the juices of herbs and spices, which will be made known to you at the end of my holy treatise, which the great god Helios Mithras ordered to be revealed to me by his archangel. So that I alone may ascend into heaven as an inquirer and behold the universe. ΑΕΗΙΟΥΩΥΟΙΗΕΑ!
PGM IV. 475-829
