In the mystic mood of prophecy, when hidden in her heart the heavenly fervour glowed, she fixed her eyes upon the child [Asklepios] [and foretold his future]. What mortal father begot this maid?
And from what race of men has she been reft, to dwell within the dark dells of these clouded mountains? For her soul breeds a boundless wealth of valour. It is right to lay on her the touch of an ennobling hand, or even to pluck the flower of love, sweeter than honey?
Yet thou, for whom even to savour falsehood is sacrilege, art led by they desire's delight thus to dissemble. Dost thou ask, o king, of what race is the maiden? Thou who knowest well the fated end of all things, whither all roads shall lead, who know'st the number of leaves that earth puts forth to meet the spring, how many grains of sand the surge of sea, or the sweeping gales send rolling down beside the river banks; thou who see'st clearly what shall be, and whence it shall betide!

For they [Iason's parents], when first I saw the light, fearing that leader's overweening and cruel pride, laid forth within the house dark robes of mourning, as though their babe were dead; and amidst wailing women sent me forth secretly, wrapped in purple swaddling clothes, that only the dark of night might know my path, and gave me to Kheiron, Kronos' Cronus' son, to be my guardian.
