Gold funerary tablet (c. 200 BCE) found at Eleutherna, Crete,
of the kind presumed to be associated
with an aural ἱερός λόγος (esoteric mythos),
all of which funerary items have inscriptions similar to the following:
Γῆς παῖς εἰμι καὶ Οὐρανοῦ ἀστερόεντος
(I am a child of Gaia and the starry heavens)

Nota Bene: As this translation and commentary is a work in progress, it will be updated as and when newly translated verses are available and is subject to revision. I have also included the Greek text (NA28) of vv.1-19 of chapter one so that those conversant with New Testament Greek can compare my translation of those verses to that text.
