Orphic Gold Tablet 4th C BCE Thurii
« on: February 22, 2015, 08:27:29 am »
Orphic Gold Tablet dated 4th C BCE from Thurii

I come pure from the pure, Queen of the Chthonian Ones,
Eucles, Euboleus and the other immortal gods.
For I also claim to be of your happy race.
But Moira overcame me and the other immortal gods
and the star-flinger with lightening.
I have flown out of the heavy, difficult circle,
I have approached the longed-for crown with swift feet,
I have sunk beneath the breast of the Lady, the Chthonian Queen,
I have approached the long-for crown with swift feet.
"Happy and blessed, you will be a god instead of a mortal."
A kid I fell into milk.


Just wanted to share that.
Blessings

we should actually post these as they come, it's always good to find the text of the Orphic 'gold-leafs'
