To the apple-bearing shore of the Hesperides, famous singers, would I go my way, there where the lord of the deep-blue mere [745] forbids further passage to sailors, fixing the sacred boundary of the skies, the pillar held up by Atlas. There fonts immortal flow by the place where Zeus lay,1 [750] and holy Earth with her gifts of blessedness makes the gods' prosperity wax great.

1 The reference is to the marriage of Zeus and Hera, which the scholiast implies was consummated here.
