Gods of the City

Aeschylus, Agamemnon 88-91 (tr. Herbert Weir Smyth, revised by me):
For all the gods protecting our city,
the gods above, the gods below,
the gods of the doors and of the marketplace,
have their altars ablaze with offerings...

πάντων δὲ θεῶν τῶν ἀστυνόμων,
ὑπάτων, χθονίων,
τῶν τε θυραίων τῶν τ' ἀγοραίων,        90
βωμοὶ δώροισι φλέγονται...

90 τε θυραίων Robert Enger: τ' οὐρανίων codd.
