And now a torrent of tears has broken forth;
disease has assaulted Heracles, to our sorrow -
a plague more dire than his foes had ever
inflicted upon him in combat.
O dark steel point of the battle spear,
swiftly thou carriedst the bride
down from Oechalia's heights
by virtue of warlike prowess.
860But the Goddess of Love has been present among us,
working these deeds in silence.
