Below is an early version of the Hail Aradia invocation or Almathean Horn Prayer, dated to 1953.
Hail, Aradia, from the Amalthean horn Pour forth they store of Love. I lowly bend Before Thee! I invoke thee at the end When other Gods are fallen and put to scorn. Thy foot is to my lips! My sighs inborn Rise, touch, curl about thy heart. Then spend, Pitiful Love, loveliest Pity, descend And bring me luck who am lonely and forlorn.
Toni, from the Traditional Stregheria list, sent me this piece of classic Crowley. Apparently Crowley wrote an invocation to Tyche for Auguste Rodin. The invocation was eventually published in French and English in Rodin in Rime, later published in 1907 e.v. in The Works of Aleister Crowley, Vol. III, p. 120. Originally, this poem or invocation to Tyche commemorated one of Rodin's sculptures.

By the dates, and by comparing the texts, it is fairly clear that this early invocation of Aradia directly derived from the invocation to Tyche titled, LA FORTUNE.
The more famous version of this Hail Aradia invocation or Almathean Horn Prayer is the Farrar-Alexandrian Invocation of Aradia.
