[sc. Aphrodite is] not [sc. called this] because she reached Cythera, as Hesiod says;[1] rather, she has love hidden[2] within herself, which she sends to all; for through her charmed girdle she has the power.
They say that Lais[3] was a courtesan, a mortal Cythereia, who had more noble suitors than did the bride [Helen, daughter] of Tyndaris.[4]
