[Priapos] was conceived out of Zeus and Aphrodite; but Hera in a jealous rage laid hands by a certain trickery on the belly of Aphrodite and readied a shapeless and ugly and over-fleshy babe to be born. His mother flung it onto a mountain; a shepherd raised [it] up. He had genitals [pointing] upwards into his butt. He was called (?)Periapos in the Italian language and was honored among shepherds. His image is a child with a big erect member.
