Reliquiae Volume 9 No 2 features translations from Akkadian, Chippewa, Danish, Ancient Greek, Old Icelandic, Iglulingmiut, Italian, Nahuatl, Navajo, Old English, Portuguese, Scottish Gaelic, West Saxon and Spanish. Among the new English translations are an Aztec song of the mythological ‘cloud serpent’, a riddle-poem from the Codex Exoniensis and Parmenides’ writings on the natural world. In prose there is a Chilean ‘materia medica’ and an incantatory essay on the circling liturgy of the word; an ethnographic account of Bagabo conceptions of the nature of being, including notions concerning the ‘right-hand’ and ‘left-hand’ souls; an ancient treatise on the medicinal qualities of elder trees and a historical survey of the immemorial landscapes situated between the Golden Horn and the Sea of Marmara.
