Helios chant from Dion Fortune

Postby AliceKnewIt » Mon Jul 03, 2017 5:18 am

This chant is on page 266 of "The Demon Lover" by Dion Fortune:

Helios, Helios, Quanto Rhopantanek!
Quanto Rhopantanek Helion!

Google translate did not help me, I don't know what it means.
Anyone study Latin?

Here is a lovely rendition of chant by two Brazilian singers:

Helios, Helios, Quanto Rhopantanek!
Quanto Rhopantanek Helion!


I don't have the book, so can't look it up for myself.
If it's written virtually like this, then it's a mixture of languages.
The only clear Latin word above is Quanto; Helios is a Greek word; Rhopantanek sounds Greek (though I did not get any meaningful hint from Google translate for this).

Rhopantanek may be divided into parts:

Rho (ρω) - panta (παντα) - nek

ρω = the short form of "I ask"
παντα = all/everything/continuity

-nek isn't Greek (I've searched for suffixes, and this definitely isn't a Greek suffix, nor a word in Greek)

Quanto is a clear Latin word, and I could not find any Greek word with the same root.

In context, it's meant to be an Atlantean invocation. Best guess is that Fortune created words that could feasibly have come down to Greek and Latin from a common "Atlantean" source.

So roughly, it's something like:

Helios, Helios, How much I ask for everything!
How much I ask for everything, Helion!
