πιστότατος μερόπων τις ἔοι πυλαωρὸς ἐμεῖο,
κρίνων λουομένων καιρὸν ἐσηλυσίης,
μή τινα Νηιάδων τις ἐμοῖς ἐνὶ χεύμασι γυμνήν,
ἢ μετὰ καλλικόμων Κύπριν ἴδοι Χαρίτων

οὐκ ἐθέλων χαλεποὶ δὲ θεοὶ φαίνεσθαι ἐναργεῖς:
τίς γὰρ Ὁμηρείοις ἀντιφέροιτο λόγοις;

— Paton edition

Let my doorkeeper be the most faithful of men,
keeping careful note of the time at which bathers
enter me, lest anyone against his will see one of the
Naiads naked in my waters, or Cypris with the long-
haired Graces : " For hard are the gods to him who
sees them manifestly."¹ Who would dispute Homer's
dictum?
