[535] 'Tis folly, folly, that the land of Greece makes great the slaughter of cattle by the banks of the Alpheus and in the Pythian house of Apollo1 if we pay no honor to Eros, mankind's despot, who holds the keys [540] to the sweet chambers of Aphrodite! He ruins mortals and sets them upon all manner of disaster when he visits them.

1 Olympia and Delphi, holy places of Zeus and Apollo.
