Homeric hymn to Poseidon


Do you like history and classical mythology?
You will learn many things during our visit to the temple of Poseidon.
This 7th century B.C Homeric hymn is a good introduction to the protagonist of our guided tour:
“I begin to sing about Poseidon, the great god, mover of the earth and fruitless sea, god of the deep who is also lord of Helikon (Helicon) and wide Aigai (Aegae). O Shaker of the Earth (Ennosigaios), to be a tamer of horses and a saviour of ships! Hail Poseidon Holder of the Earth (gaienokhos), dark-haired lord! O blessed one, be kindly in heart and help those who voyage in ships!”
