ἁ Κύπρις πρῴαν γυμνὰν ς1᾽ ἐβόασεν ἰδοῦσα:


φεῦ, φεῦ, πῶς σταγόνων ἔκτοθεν Οὐρανίων,

ζαλώσας ὠδῖνα Θαλάσσας, ὁ θρασὺς ἄλλαν

Νεῖλος ἀπὸ γλυκερῶν Κύπριν ἀνῆκε βυθῶν;

— Paton edition

Cypris, of late, on seeing thee naked, exclaimed :
" Oh ! Oh ! look how impudent Nile, envying the
sea's parentage, has, without the blood of Uranus,¹
sent up another Cypris from his sweet depths."
