O Cretan vessel with wing of white canvas, that ferried over the loud-sounding wave of the sea [755] my lady from her house of blessedness, a boon that was no boon to make an unhappy bride: it was with evil omen, at the start of her journey and its end, that she sped from the land of Crete [760] to glorious Athens and they tied the plaited ends of the mooring-cable on Munichus' shore1 and trod the mainland.

1 Munichus was the eponymous hero of the Athenian port of Munichion.
