Heliades (II)


during my father’s setting,

is the cup wrought by Hephaestus,

the cup in which he crosses

the wide swelling seas,


fleeing the darkness

of holy night, with her black horses.”

A fragment from Aeschylus’ lost play Heliades, where the chorus, daughters of the Sun, describe their father’s golden cup, which enabled him to travel from the west to the east during the night.
