Two Greek Lyrics

Sing of Demeter, ruler of corn-rich Sikelia, and of the violet-garlanded Koure [Persephone]. — Greek Lyric IV Bacchylides, Frag 3

I sing of the mother of Ploutos (Wealth), Demeter Olympia, in the garland-wearing season, and of you, Persephone, child of Zeus: greetings, both! Tend the city well. — Greek Lyric V Scolia, Frag 885
