Texts

ἣν τὸ πάρος φιλέεσκεν Ἄρης, σκοπίαζε.Κυθείρην
ἐνθάδε λουομένην νάμασι φαιδροτάτοις:
δέρκεο νηχομένην μὴ δείδιθι: οὐ γὰρ Ἀθήνην
παρθένον εἰσοράᾳς, οἷά τε Τειρεσίας.

— Paton edition

Look at Cytherea whom Ares once loved, bathing
here in the limpid stream. Look at her swimming,
and fear not. It is not maiden Athena that you see,
as Tiresias did.
