Hymn to Hestia.

Post  starscream on Wed Jan 29, 2014 7:40 pm

I'm looking for Hymn To Hestia #84 from The Orphic Hymns. When I was looking at the ones posted at sacred-texts what they have as #84 is actually To Sleep. Does anyone have the one that should be there?

I believe that site uses a public-domain version of the 1790s edition, in which the first hymn is combined uno the end of the proem hymn, thus setting off the numbering by 1 from the manuscript numbering and that used in the 19th century republication.

There is nothing missing, the numbering is just one off.

So the Hymn I would use would be the Hymn to Vesta?

Yes, the #83 of the first edition numbering, #84 in the revision numbering.
