I've just finished work on an entryway Thyræum [Grk: Θυραῖον], the household shrine customarily consecrated to the domestically-associate Powers — Enodia-Fortuna [Ἐνοδία-Τύχη], Jove the Propitious [Ζάς-Μειλίχιος] and Apollo of the Threshold/Roadway [Ἀπόλλων-Θυραῖος/Ἀγυιεύς] — situated at the primary entryway of a residence.

Here is the end result:

"O Best of Gods, blest daimon crown'd with fire . . . hear, and from punishment my soul absolve, the punishment incurr'd by pristine guilt, thro' Lethe's darkness and terrene desire: and if for long-extended years I'm doom'd in these drear realms Heav'n's exile to remain, O grant me soon the necessary means to gain that good which solitude confers on souls emerging from the bitter waves of fraudful Hyle's black, impetuous flood!"
-Iulianic Hymn to Apollon-Helios, ll. 65-106

"Having come for punishment, one must be punished. One must not pull apart the god within oneself."
-Iamblichus, Vita Pythagorica

"Truth would you teach, or save a sinking land,
All hear, none aid you, and few understand."
-Alexander Pope
