This man fell in love with Hera; she announced [this] to Zeus, who, wanting to learn [the truth about] this, made a cloud in the shape of Hera and set it up. And Ixion had sex with the cloud.

Ἰξίων: οὗτος ἠράσθη τῆς Ἥρας: ἣ δὲ προσαγγέλλει τῷ Διί̈, ὃς βουληθεὶς γνῶναι τοῦτο ἐξομοιοῖ νεφέλην τῇ Ἥρᾳ καὶ ἔστησεν. ὁ δὲ Ἰξίων μίγνυται αὐτῇ. καὶ ὀργισθεὶς ὁ Ζεὺς κολάζει αὐτὸν τροχῷ διατείνων ἀεὶ φερομένῳ καὶ ἀνακυκλουμένῳ.
