Italian term or phrase: Oggetto de miei numi,
Normally this means Object of my gods but that doesn't seem to fit in.
Opera: Poliuto. Poliuto has just become a Christian (thus no 'gods' and addresses Paolina who has just discovered that he has converted to this forbidden religion:
Oggetto de miei numi,
gentil pensier di me,
clemente fra gli eletti
Iddio ti chiama a sé.
Ah! se tu m'ami, taci
Piangendo chieggo a te.
Lo sdegno lor paventa,
Lo sposo salva a me,
Paventa il loro sdegno!
