The Goddess Aphrodite



● | ● | ● | ●

She clothed herself with garments which the Graces and Hours had made for her and dyed in flowers of spring
such flowers as the Seasons wear - in crocus and hyacinth and flourishing violet and the rose's lovely
bloom, so sweet and delicious, and heavenly buds, the flowers of the narcissus and lily. In such
perfumed garments is Aphrodite clothed at all seasons. Then laughter-loving Aphrodite
and her handmaidens wove sweet-smelling crowns of flowers of the earth and
put them upon their heads - the bright-coiffed goddesses, the Nymphs
and Graces, and golden Aphrodite too, while they sang sweetly
on the mount of many-fountained Ida.
