Then fruitfull Ceres voide of care in that she did recover Hir daughter, prayde thee, Arethuse, the storie to discover, What caused thee to fleete so farre and wherefore thou became A sacred spring? The waters whist. The Goddesse of the same Did from the bottome of the Well hir goodly head up reare. And having dried with hir hand hir faire greene hanging heare, The River Alpheys auncient loves she thus began to tell. I was (quoth she) a Nymph of them that in Achaia dwell. There was not one that earnester the Lawndes and forests sought Or pitcht hir toyles more handsomly. And though that of my thought It was no part, to seeke the fame of beautie: though I were All courage: yet the pricke and prise of beautie I did beare. My overmuch commended face was unto me a spight. This gift of bodie in the which another would delight, I, rudesbye, was ashamed of: me thought it was a crime To be belikte. I beare it well in minde that on a time In comming wearie from the chase of Stymphalus,

When greeting first had past betweene these Nobles and the King, Then Cephal setting streight abroche the message he did bring, Desired aide: and shewde what leagues stoode then in force betweene His countrie and the Aeginites, and also what had beene Decreed betwixt their aunceters, concluding in the ende That under colour of this war which Minos did pretende To only Athens, he in deede the conquest did intende Of all Achaia. When he thus by helpe of learned skill His countrie message furthred had, King Aeacus leaning still His left hand on his scepter, saide: My Lordes, I would not have Your state of Athens seeme so straunge as succor here to crave. I pray commaund. For be ye sure that what this Ile can make Is yours. Yea all that ere I have shall hazard for your sake. I want no strength. I have such store of souldiers, that I may Both vex my foes and also keepe my Realme in quiet stay. And now I thinke

erciful. And now with high renowne Had Theseus ceast the wofull pay of tribute in the towne Of Athens. Temples decked were with garlands every where, And supplications made to Jove and warlicke Pallas were, And all the other Gods, to whome more honor for to show, Gifts, blud of beasts, and frankincense the people did bestow As in performance of their vowes. The right redoubted name Of Theseus through the lande of Greece was spred by flying fame. And now the folke that in the land of rich Achaia dwelt, Praid him of succor in the harmes and perils that they felt. Although the land of Calydon had then Meleager: Yet was it faine in humble wise to Theseus to prefer A supplication for the aide of him. The cause wherfore They made such humble suit to him was this. There was a Bore The which Diana for to wreake hir wrath conceyvde before Had thither as hir servant sent the countrie for to waast.

Ageine the towne of Lewcas once was free From sea, and in the auncient tyme was joyned to the land. But now environd round about with water it dooth stand. Men say that Sicill also hath beene joynd to Italy Untill the sea consumde the bounds beetweene, and did supply The roome with water. If yee go to seeke for Helicee And Burye which were Cities of Achaia, you shall see Them hidden under water, and the shipmen yit doo showe The walles and steeples of the townes drownd under as they rowe. Not farre from Pitthey Troyzen is a certeine high ground found All voyd of trees, which heeretofore was playne and levell ground, But now a mountayne.
