Night falls in Timeria,
what will the new day bring us?
It’s time for people to prepare,
for tomorrow it will be the Phitoigia.

Anthesteria, Anthesteria!
Anthesteria, Anthesteria!

Bring here the wine from those jars,
also the first flowers will be brought,
the first, on the cups shall be poured,
the second, to Dionysus offered.

Anthesteria, Anthesteria!
Anthesteria, Anthesteria!

If Semele’s son comes from the sea,
will be invited into our city,
follow the Gerarai, they will lead you to the Agora,
and there our Basilina will wait for you.

Anthesteria, Anthesteria!
Anthesteria, Anthesteria!
