Prayer to Zeus
Seneca, Hercules Furens 205-207 (tr. Frank Justus Miller):Newer› ‹Older
O mighty ruler of Olympus, judge of all the world,John G. Fitch ad loc.:
set now at length a limit to our crushing cares,
an end to our disasters.
O magne Olympi rector et mundi arbiter,
iam statue tandem gravibus aerumnis modum
Arbiter here means "lord, controller" (not "judge," Miller), as at 597f. caelestum arbiter / parensque.
