Protect My Brother Haraxos

O Kypris and Nereids, I pray you
to sail my brother home unharmed
and let him accomplish all
        that is in his heart

and be released from former error
and carry joy to his friends
and bane to enemies and let no one
        bring us more grief.

Let him honor me his sister.
But black torment
        suffering for early days,

citizens accused.
Was it over millet seed?

Pure Kypris, put aside
old anger and free him from
        evil sorrow
