Cadmus of Tyre came to this land, and at his feet a four-footed, [640] untamed heifer threw itself down, fulfilling an oracle, where the god's prophecy told him to make his home in the plains rich with wheat, [645] and where the lovely waters of Dirce pour over the fields, the green and deep-seeded fields; here Bromius' mother gave birth [650] from her union with Zeus; Bromius, round whom the ivy twined its wreaths while he was still a baby, covering him and blessing him in the shades of its green foliage, [655] a Bacchic dance for the maids and wives inspired in Thebes.
