Theseus, offspring of Aegeus, son of the daughter of Pittheus,And this oracle they say the Sibyl afterwards repeated to the city, when she cried:—
Many indeed the cities to which my father has given
Bounds and future fates within your citadel's confines.
Therefore be not dismayed, but with firm and confident spirit
Counsel only; the bladder will traverse the sea and its surges.
‘Bladder may be submerged; but its sinking will not be permitted.’
