[Chorus of Handmaidens]
Yet there is no disdain of Cypris in this our friendly hymn;  for she, together with Hera, holds power nearest to Zeus, and for her solemn rites the goddess of varied wiles is held in honor. And in the train of their mother are Desire and she to whom nothing is denied,  winning Persuasion; and to Harmonia has been given a share of Aphrodite, and to the whispering touches of the Loves.
