"[Io] darkness, my light, and Erebos most shining for me! Take me, take me as a dweller [sc. of your realm], take me! I am not longer worthy to look upon the race of gods or any of ephemeral men for assistance." That is, I am not worthy to see the race of gods or of men for help; you see, I deserve to depart from life. Or thus: neither men nor gods are [available] for help; so why should I live? As if one should consider death a [form of] salvation.[1]
