الصفحة 276 - Jupiter, jEsculapius in Apollo, and the Graces in Venus. We may also behold the spheres with which they are connected, viz. Vesta with the earth, Neptune with water, Juno with air, and Vulcan with fire. But Apollo and Diana are assumed for the sun and moon ; the sphere of Saturn is attributed to Ceres ; ether to Minerva; and heaven is common to them all.
الصفحة 308 - But again, since different gifts are imparted to the world by different gods, they appear to contest with each other for the apple. And a soul living according to sense, (for this is Paris) not perceiving other powers in the universe, asserts that the apple is alone the beauty of Venus.
الصفحة 319 - With dulcet beverage this the beaker crown'd, Fair in the midst, with gilded cups around ; That in the tripod o'er the kindled pile The water pours ; the bubbling waters boil ; An ample vase receives the smoking wave ; And, in the bath prepared, my limbs I lave : Reviving sweets repair the mind's decay, And take the painful sense of toil away.
الصفحة 355 - Nigh the cursed shore and listen to the lay. No more that wretch shall view the joys of life His blooming offspring, or his beauteous wife! In verdant meads they sport; and wide around Lie human bones that whiten all the ground: The ground polluted floats with human gore, And human carnage taints the dreadful shore Fly swift the dangerous coast: let every ear Be stopp'd against the song!

الصفحة 265 - ... related only concerning the Atlantic mountain ; but Ptolemy also says that the Lunar mountains are of an immense height ; and Aristotle, that Caucasus is enlightened by the rays of the sun a third part of the night after sunset, and a third part before the rising of the sun ; and if any one considers the whole magnitude of the earth, bounded by its elevated parts, he will conclude that it is truly of a prodigious magnitude, according to the assertion of Plato.
الصفحة 93 - He is not immediately after this led by the sacrificers to the oracle, but is first brought to the fountains of the river, which are very near to each other. Here he is obliged to drink of that which is called the water of Lethe, that he may become oblivious of all the former objects of his pursuit.
الصفحة 55 - Proserpine, into which the unitiated are not permitted to enter. But who the Cabiri are, and what the ceremonies which are performed in honour of them, and the mother of the gods, I must beg those that are desirous of hearing such particulars to suffer me to pass over in silence.
الصفحة 333 - ... about the one divinity of the heavens. For there are progressions of all the celestial Gods into the Earth : and Earth contains all things, in an earthly manner, which Heaven comprehends celestially. Hence we speak of a terrestrial Bacchus and a terrestrial Apollo, who bestows the all-various streams of water with which the earth abounds, and openings prophetic of futurity.
الصفحة 353 - ... of the fountain, she delivers oracles, but is not visible to those that are present. That this water, therefore, is prophetic, is from hence manifest. But how it becomes so, this (according to the proverb) is not for every man to know. For it appears as if a certain prophetic spirit pervaded through the water.
