Orphic Hymn to Dionysos

[46] XLVI. TO BACCHUS PERICIONIUS [DIONYSOS PERIKIONIOS]

The Fumigation from Aromatics.
Bacchus Pericionius [Dionysos Perikionios], hear my pray'r,
who mad'st the house of Cadmus once thy care,
With matchless force, his pillars twining round, (when burning thunders shook the solid ground,
In flaming, founding torrents borne along), propt by thy grasp indissolubly strong.
Come mighty Bacchus to these rites inclin'd, and bless thy suppliants with rejoicing mind.
