Of beauty at the time of the ancient Romans
I have come from Miletos to Latmos
on a white chariot
drawn by four snow-white horses,
all their trappings silver.
I sailed from Alexandria in a purple trireme
to perform sacred rites
sacrifices and libations
in honour of Endymion.
And here is it.
I now watch at
Endymion’s famous beauty.
