οἳ δ᾽ ἱστὸν στήσαντ᾽ ἀνά θ᾽ ἱστία λευκὰ πέτασσαν,
ἐν δ᾽ ἄνεμος πρῆσεν μέσον ἱστίον, ἀμφὶ δὲ κῦμα
στείρῃ πορφύρεον μεγάλ᾽ ἴαχε νηὸς ἰούσης:
ἣ δ᾽ ἔθεεν κατὰ κῦμα διαπρήσσουσα κέλευθον.
αὐτὰρ ἐπεί ῥ᾽ ἵκοντο κατὰ στρατὸν εὐρὺν Ἀχαιῶν,
νῆα μὲν οἵ γε μέλαιναν ἐπ᾽ ἠπείροιο ἔρυσσαν
ὑψοῦ ἐπὶ ψαμάθοις, ὑπὸ δ᾽ ἕρματα μακρὰ τάνυσσαν:
αὐτοὶ δ᾽ ἐσκίδναντο κατὰ κλισίας τε νέας τε.
And they set up the mast and spread out the white sails, and a wind blew up the middle of the sail, and a heaving wave at the great stern of the moving ship shrieked loudly on both sides. And she ran over a wave as it passed through her wave as she passed through her path. But when they arrived at the broad camp of the Acheans, at any rate they dragged the black ship onto the land high on the sand and put long supports under it. They dispersed throughout both the huts and the ships.
αὐτὰρ ὃ μήνιε νηυσὶ παρήμενος ὠκυπόροισι
διογενὴς Πηλῆος υἱὸς πόδας ὠκὺς Ἀχιλλεύς:
οὔτέ ποτ᾽ εἰς ἀγορὴν πωλέσκετο κυδιάνειραν
οὔτέ ποτ᾽ ἐς πόλεμον, ἀλλὰ φθινύθεσκε φίλον κῆρ
αὖθι μένων, ποθέεσκε δ᾽ ἀϋτήν τε πτόλεμόν τε.
But Zeus born son of Peleus, swift footed Achilles gave free rein to his anger as he sat beside his swift sailing ships. He never went frequently to the market place that brings men glory, nor ever to war, but he wasted away in his own heart as he stayed without stirring, and he longed for both the battle cry and war.
ἀλλ᾽ ὅτε δή ῥ᾽ ἐκ τοῖο δυωδεκάτη γένετ᾽ ἠώς,
καὶ τότε δὴ πρὸς Ὄλυμπον ἴσαν θεοὶ αἰὲν ἐόντες πάντες ἅμα, Ζεὺς δ᾽ ἦρχε: Θέτις δ᾽ οὐ λήθετ᾽ ἐφετμέων
παιδὸς ἑοῦ, ἀλλ᾽ ἥ γ᾽ ἀνεδύσετο κῦμα θαλάσσης.
ἠερίη δ᾽ ἀνέβη μέγαν οὐρανὸν Οὔλυμπόν τε.
εὗρεν δ᾽ εὐρύοπα Κρονίδην ἄτερ ἥμενον ἄλλων
ἀκροτάτῃ κορυφῇ πολυδειράδος Οὐλύμποιο:
But when in fact the 12th dawn after this occurred, even then after this the gods who live eternally went to Olympus all together, and Zeus led the way. Thetis did not the orders of her own child, but she rose up from a wave of the sea. In the early morning she went up to the great heaven and Olympus. She found the far-seeing son of Cronos sitting apart from the others on the highest peak of many ridged Olympus
καί ῥα πάροιθ᾽ αὐτοῖο καθέζετο, καὶ λάβε γούνων
σκαιῇ, δεξιτερῇ δ᾽ ἄρ᾽ ὑπ᾽ ἀνθερεῶνος ἑλοῦσα
λισσομένη προσέειπε Δία Κρονίωνα ἄνακτα:
Ζεῦ πάτερ εἴ ποτε δή σε μετ᾽ ἀθανάτοισιν ὄνησα
ἢ ἔπει ἢ ἔργῳ, τόδε μοι κρήηνον ἐέλδωρ:
τίμησόν μοι υἱὸν ὃς ὠκυμορώτατος ἄλλων
And she sat in front of him and took him by the knees with her left hand, and having taken up under the chin with her right, begging, she addressed king Zeus, son of Cronos: "Father Zeus, if ever indeed I helped you amongst the immortals, either by word or by deed, grant me this wish. Honour my son, who is the most short lived of all men.
ἔπλετ᾽: ἀτάρ μιν νῦν γε ἄναξ ἀνδρῶν Ἀγαμέμνων
ἠτίμησεν: ἑλὼν γὰρ ἔχει γέρας αὐτὸς ἀπούρας.
ἀλλὰ σύ πέρ μιν τῖσον Ὀλύμπιε μητίετα Ζεῦ:
τόφρα δ᾽ ἐπὶ Τρώεσσι τίθει κράτος ὄφρ᾽ ἂν Ἀχαιοὶ
υἱὸν ἐμὸν τίσωσιν ὀφέλλωσίν τέ ἑ τιμῇ.
But now at any rate Agamemnon, king of men, has dishonoured him. For having taken his prize, he keeps her, having taken her away himself. But you indeed all-wise Olympian Zeus. Place strength in the Trojans up to the time until the Acheans honour my son and advance him in honour."
ὣς φάτο: τὴν δ᾽ οὔ τι προσέφη νεφεληγερέτα Ζεύς,
ἀλλ᾽ ἀκέων δὴν ἧστο: Θέτις δ᾽ ὡς ἥψατο γούνων
ὣς ἔχετ᾽ ἐμπεφυυῖα, καὶ εἴρετο δεύτερον αὖτις:
νημερτὲς μὲν δή μοι ὑπόσχεο καὶ κατάνευσον
ἢ ἀπόειπ᾽, ἐπεὶ οὔ τοι ἔπι δέος, ὄφρ᾽ ἐῢ εἰδέω
ὅσσον ἐγὼ μετὰ πᾶσιν ἀτιμοτάτη θεός εἰμι.
Thus she spoke And cloud gatherer Zeus did not address her at all but sat silently for a long time. As Thetis grasped his knees, so she held on clinging tightly, and asked again a second time: "Indeed promise and grant me the certain pledge, or refuse it since you have no fear, so that I know well how much I am the most dishonoured as a god amongst them all."
τὴν δὲ μέγ᾽ ὀχθήσας προσέφη νεφεληγερέτα Ζεύς:
'ἦ δὴ λοίγια ἔργ᾽ ὅ τέ μ᾽ ἐχθοδοπῆσαι ἐφήσεις
Ἥρῃ ὅτ᾽ ἄν μ᾽ ἐρέθῃσιν ὀνειδείοις ἐπέεσσιν:
ἣ δὲ καὶ αὔτως μ᾽ αἰεὶ ἐν ἀθανάτοισι θεοῖσι
νεικεῖ, καί τέ μέ φησι μάχῃ Τρώεσσιν ἀρήγειν.
Cloud gatherer Zeus, greatly annoyed, addressed her: "Truly indeed what an appalling business because you will incite me to quarrel with Hera when she will provoke me with reproachful words. And she, even as it is, always abuses me amongst the immortal gods and says that I am helping the Trojans in battle.
ἀλλὰ σὺ μὲν νῦν αὖτις ἀπόστιχε μή τι νοήσῃ
Ἥρη: ἐμοὶ δέ κε ταῦτα μελήσεται ὄφρα τελέσσω:
εἰ δ᾽ ἄγε τοι κεφαλῇ κατανεύσομαι ὄφρα πεποίθῃς:
τοῦτο γὰρ ἐξ ἐμέθεν γε μετ᾽ ἀθανάτοισι μέγιστον
τέκμωρ: οὐ γὰρ ἐμὸν παλινάγρετον οὐδ᾽ ἀπατηλὸν
οὐδ᾽ ἀτελεύτητον ὅ τί κεν κεφαλῇ κατανεύσω.
But now you go home again, in fear that Hera notices something.These things will be a concern to me, so that I bring them to pass. Come, I shall nod assent with my head for you, so that you trust me. For this is the greatest sing from me amongst the immortals, For nothing from me is reversible, nor false, nor unaccomplished, whatever I nod assent to with my head."
ἦ καὶ κυανέῃσιν ἐπ᾽ ὀφρύσι νεῦσε Κρονίων:
ἀμβρόσιαι δ᾽ ἄρα χαῖται ἐπερρώσαντο ἄνακτος
κρατὸς ἀπ᾽ ἀθανάτοιο: μέγαν δ᾽ ἐλέλιξεν Ὄλυμπον.
He spoke and the son of Cronos nodded assent to it with his dark eyebrows. Then his holy locks flowed from the immortal head of the king. He shook great Olympus.
τώ γ᾽ ὣς βουλεύσαντε διέτμαγεν: ἣ μὲν ἔπειτα
εἰς ἅλα ἆλτο βαθεῖαν ἀπ᾽ αἰγλήεντος Ὀλύμπου,
Ζεὺς δὲ ἑὸν πρὸς δῶμα: θεοὶ δ᾽ ἅμα πάντες ἀνέσταν
ἐξ ἑδέων σφοῦ πατρὸς ἐναντίον: οὐδέ τις ἔτλη
μεῖναι ἐπερχόμενον, ἀλλ᾽ ἀντίοι ἔσταν ἅπαντες.
Having deliberated thus, the two parted. She then leapt into the deep sea from dazzling Olympus but Zeus went to his own home. All the gods stood up together from their seats in the presence of their father. Nor did anyone dare to eater him to approach, but they all stood up to meet him.
ὣς ὃ μὲν ἔνθα καθέζετ᾽ ἐπὶ θρόνου: οὐδέ μιν Ἥρη
ἠγνοίησεν ἰδοῦσ᾽ ὅτι οἱ συμφράσσατο βουλὰς
ἀργυρόπεζα Θέτις θυγάτηρ ἁλίοιο γέροντος.
αὐτίκα κερτομίοισι Δία Κρονίωνα προσηύδα:
τίς δ᾽ αὖ τοι δολομῆτα θεῶν συμφράσσατο βουλάς;
αἰεί τοι φίλον ἐστὶν ἐμεῦ ἀπὸ νόσφιν ἐόντα
κρυπτάδια φρονέοντα δικαζέμεν: οὐδέ τί πώ μοι
πρόφρων τέτληκας εἰπεῖν ἔπος ὅττι νοήσῃς.
Thus he sat there on his throne. Nor did Hera not perceive when she looked at him that silver footed Thetis, daughter of the old man of the sea, had shared counsels with him. She immediately addressed Zeus, son of Cronos, with taunting words: "Indeed, which of the gods shared counsels with you again, O craft one? It is always dear to you to decide with your secretive thoughts when you are far from me. And never at all have you dared to tell me voluntarily what counsel you devise."
τὴν δ᾽ ἠμείβετ᾽ ἔπειτα πατὴρ ἀνδρῶν τε θεῶν τε:
545Ἥρη μὴ δὴ πάντας ἐμοὺς ἐπιέλπεο μύθους
εἰδήσειν: χαλεποί τοι ἔσοντ᾽ ἀλόχῳ περ ἐούσῃ:
ἀλλ᾽ ὃν μέν κ᾽ ἐπιεικὲς ἀκουέμεν οὔ τις ἔπειτα
οὔτε θεῶν πρότερος τὸν εἴσεται οὔτ᾽ ἀνθρώπων:
ὃν δέ κ᾽ ἐγὼν ἀπάνευθε θεῶν ἐθέλωμι νοῆσαι
μή τι σὺ ταῦτα ἕκαστα διείρεο μηδὲ μετάλλα.
And the father of gods and men then replied to her: "Hera, indeed don't expect to know all my thoughts. They will be difficult for you, although you are my wife. But whatever thought is fitting for you to hear, none of the gods or men will then know it first. But whatever thought I wish to devise away from the gods, don't you ask or question closely each of these at all."
τὸν δ᾽ ἠμείβετ᾽ ἔπειτα βοῶπις πότνια Ἥρη:
αἰνότατε Κρονίδη ποῖον τὸν μῦθον ἔειπες;
καὶ λίην σε πάρος γ᾽ οὔτ᾽ εἴρομαι οὔτε μεταλλῶ,
ἀλλὰ μάλ᾽ εὔκηλος τὰ φράζεαι ἅσσ᾽ ἐθέλῃσθα.
νῦν δ᾽ αἰνῶς δείδοικα κατὰ φρένα μή σε παρείπῃ
ἀργυρόπεζα Θέτις θυγάτηρ ἁλίοιο γέροντος:
ἠερίη γὰρ σοί γε παρέζετο καὶ λάβε γούνων:
τῇ σ᾽ ὀΐω κατανεῦσαι ἐτήτυμον ὡς Ἀχιλῆα
τιμήσῃς, ὀλέσῃς δὲ πολέας ἐπὶ νηυσὶν Ἀχαιῶν
Then ox-eyed lady Hera replied to him: "Most dreadful son of Cronos, what a word you have said! And truly I have neither asked you nor questioned you before, but without pressure you devise anythings that you want. Now I am terribly afraid in my mind that silver footed Thetis, daughter of the old man of the sea, has won you over, for she sat beside you in the early morning and seized you by the knees. I think that you have given her a sure promise that you will honour Achilles and you will destroy many men at the ships of the Acheans."
τὴν δ᾽ ἀπαμειβόμενος προσέφη νεφεληγερέτα Ζεύς:
'δαιμονίη αἰεὶ μὲν ὀΐεαι οὐδέ σε λήθω:
πρῆξαι δ᾽ ἔμπης οὔ τι δυνήσεαι, ἀλλ᾽ ἀπὸ θυμοῦ
μᾶλλον ἐμοὶ ἔσεαι: τὸ δέ τοι καὶ ῥίγιον ἔσται.
εἰ δ᾽ οὕτω τοῦτ᾽ ἐστὶν ἐμοὶ μέλλει φίλον εἶναι:
ἀλλ᾽ ἀκέουσα κάθησο, ἐμῷ δ᾽ ἐπιπείθεο μύθῳ,
μή νύ τοι οὐ χραίσμωσιν ὅσοι θεοί εἰσ᾽ ἐν Ὀλύμπῳ
ἆσσον ἰόνθ᾽, ὅτε κέν τοι ἀάπτους χεῖρας ἐφείω.
And Zeus the cloud gatherer addressed her in reply; "My lady, you are always suspicious and I do not fool you. Nevertheless, you will not be able to accomplish anything but you will be more distant from my heart- and that will be even more miserable for you. If this is so, no doubt it must be dear to me. But sit silently and obey my word, lest indeed all the gods who are in Olympus do not now keep me off when I come nearer you, when I launch my invincible hands on you.
ὣς ἔφατ᾽ ἔδεισεν δὲ βοῶπις πότνια Ἥρη,
καί ῥ᾽ ἀκέουσα καθῆστο ἐπιγνάμψασα φίλον κῆρ:
ὄχθησαν δ᾽ ἀνὰ δῶμα Διὸς θεοὶ Οὐρανίωνες:
τοῖσιν δ᾽ Ἥφαιστος κλυτοτέχνης ἦρχ᾽ ἀγορεύειν
'μητρὶ φίλῃ ἐπίηρα φέρων λευκωλένῳ Ἥρῃ:
ἦ δὴ λοίγια ἔργα τάδ᾽ ἔσσεται οὐδ᾽ ἔτ᾽ ἀνεκτά,
εἰ δὴ σφὼ ἕνεκα θνητῶν ἐριδαίνετον ὧδε,
ἐν δὲ θεοῖσι κολῳὸν ἐλαύνετον: οὐδέ τι δαιτὸς
ἐσθλῆς ἔσσεται ἦδος, ἐπεὶ τὰ χερείονα νικᾷ.
Thus he spoke and lady ox-eyed Hera was afraid and then sat silently having bent her heart to him. The gods who live in heaven were troubled throughout the house of Zeus, Hephaestus, famed for his art, began to speak to them, bringing kindness to his dear mother, white-armed Hera: "Truly indeed these deeds will be deadly and no longer tolerable if indeed you two quarrel in this way for the sake of mortals, and you prolong the brawling amongst the gods. And no part of the good feast will be a pleasure, when the worse position winds.
μητρὶ δ᾽ ἐγὼ παράφημι καὶ αὐτῇ περ νοεούσῃ
πατρὶ φίλῳ ἐπίηρα φέρειν Διί, ὄφρα μὴ αὖτε
νεικείῃσι πατήρ, σὺν δ᾽ ἡμῖν δαῖτα ταράξῃ.
εἴ περ γάρ κ᾽ ἐθέλῃσιν Ὀλύμπιος ἀστεροπητὴς
ἐξ ἑδέων στυφελίξαι: ὃ γὰρ πολὺ φέρτατός ἐστιν.
ἀλλὰ σὺ τὸν ἐπέεσσι καθάπτεσθαι μαλακοῖσιν:
αὐτίκ᾽ ἔπειθ᾽ ἵλαος Ὀλύμπιος ἔσσεται ἡμῖν.
But i advise my other, although she realises it herself to bring kindness to my own father Zeus, so that he does not quarrel with her again and throw our feast into disorder. For if the Olympian, Lord of the Lightning, wants to thrust us from our seta he is strongest by far. But you address him with soft words. At once the Olympian will be gracious to us."
ὣς ἄρ᾽ ἔφη καὶ ἀναΐξας δέπας ἀμφικύπελλον
μητρὶ φίλῃ ἐν χειρὶ τίθει καί μιν προσέειπε:
'τέτλαθι μῆτερ ἐμή, καὶ ἀνάσχεο κηδομένη περ,
μή σε φίλην περ ἐοῦσαν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖσιν ἴδωμαι
θεινομένην, τότε δ᾽ οὔ τι δυνήσομαι ἀχνύμενός περ
χραισμεῖν: ἀργαλέος γὰρ Ὀλύμπιος ἀντιφέρεσθαι:
Thus then he spoke and having leapt up he placed a two-handled cup in his own mother's hand and addressed her; "Courage, my mother, and bear up, although you are anxious, so that I do not see with my own eyes you being struck, although you are dear, and then I will not be able to do anything to help you, although I will be grieving, for the Olympian is difficult to oppose.
ἤδη γάρ με καὶ ἄλλοτ᾽ ἀλεξέμεναι μεμαῶτα
ῥῖψε ποδὸς τεταγὼν ἀπὸ βηλοῦ θεσπεσίοιο,
πᾶν δ᾽ ἦμαρ φερόμην, ἅμα δ᾽ ἠελίῳ καταδύντι
κάππεσον ἐν Λήμνῳ, ὀλίγος δ᾽ ἔτι θυμὸς ἐνῆεν:
ἔνθά με Σίντιες ἄνδρες ἄφαρ κομίσαντο πεσόντα.
For already on another occasion too, having seized me by the foot, he threw me from the heavenly threshold when I was eager to keep him off you, and I fell for the whole day and at the same time the sun set I dropped on Lemnos, and there was little life still in me: there the Sintian men immediately took me in when I had fallen"
ὣς φάτο, μείδησεν δὲ θεὰ λευκώλενος Ἥρη,
μειδήσασα δὲ παιδὸς ἐδέξατο χειρὶ κύπελλον:
αὐτὰρ ὃ τοῖς ἄλλοισι θεοῖς ἐνδέξια πᾶσιν
οἰνοχόει γλυκὺ νέκταρ ἀπὸ κρητῆρος ἀφύσσων:
ἄσβεστος δ᾽ ἄρ᾽ ἐνῶρτο γέλως μακάρεσσι θεοῖσιν
ὡς ἴδον Ἥφαιστον διὰ δώματα ποιπνύοντα.
ὣς τότε μὲν πρόπαν ἦμαρ ἐς ἠέλιον καταδύντα
δαίνυντ᾽, οὐδέ τι θυμὸς ἐδεύετο δαιτὸς ἐΐσης,
οὐ μὲν φόρμιγγος περικαλλέος ἣν ἔχ᾽ Ἀπόλλων,
Μουσάων θ᾽ αἳ ἄειδον ἀμειβόμεναι ὀπὶ καλῇ.
Thus he spoke and white-armed goddess Hera smiled, and having smiled she received a goblet with her hand from her son. But he poured wine for all the others gods from left to right, drawing off sweet nectar from the mixing bowl. And unquenchable laughter arose amongst the blessed gods, when they saw Hephaestus bustling about through the palace. Thus then they feasted all day long to the sun setting and no spirit lacked in an equal share of the feast, nor the very beautiful lyre which Apollo had, nor the Muses who sang in reply with their sweet voices.
αὐτὰρ ἐπεὶ κατέδυ λαμπρὸν φάος ἠελίοιο,
οἳ μὲν κακκείοντες ἔβαν οἶκον δὲ ἕκαστος,
ἧχι ἑκάστῳ δῶμα περικλυτὸς ἀμφιγυήεις
Ἥφαιστος ποίησεν ἰδυίῃσι πραπίδεσσι:
Ζεὺς δὲ πρὸς ὃν λέχος ἤϊ᾽ Ὀλύμπιος ἀστεροπητής,
ἔνθα πάρος κοιμᾶθ᾽ ὅτε μιν γλυκὺς ὕπνος ἱκάνοι:
ἔνθα καθεῦδ᾽ ἀναβάς, παρὰ δὲ χρυσόθρονος Ἥρη.
But when the bright light of the sun set, they each went to their own home to lie down, where very famous lame Hephaestus had made a house for each one with his knowing mind. Olympian Zeus, Lord of Lightning, went to his own bed, where he formerly slept when sweet sleep came upon him. Having gone up there he slept, and Hera of the golden throne beside him.
