 And now I invoke, as our champion from beyond the sea, the calf born of Zeus, the offspring of the flower-grazing cow, our ancestress,  the caress of Zeus' breath. The appointed period confirmed itself in a name suited to the event—Epaphus1, to whom she gave birth.
1 Epaphus signifies “touch,” “caress.” See l. 315.
