On a Disk with a Relief of Venus and Loves

Texts

τέσσαρές εἰσιν Ἔρωτες: ὁ μὲν στέφος ἀμφικαλύπτει
μητρὸς ἑῆς: ὁ δὲ χεῖλος ἔχει ποτὶ πίδακι μαζοῦ:
οἱ δὲ δύω παίζουσι παρ᾽ ἴχνεσιν εἷμα δὲ κρύπτει
μηρῷ γείτονα χῶρον ὅλης γυμνῆς Ἀφροδίτης.

— Paton edition

Here are four Loves. One fits the garland to his
mother's brows, one has his lips at her bosom's
fountain, two play at her feet, and the robe covers
the place that is next to the thighs of Aphrodite,
otherwise wholly undraped.
