Euripides,. (n.d.). Ion. Retrieved from

MERCURY Atlas, that on his brazen shoulders rolls Yon heaven, the ancient mansion of the gods, Was by a goddess sire to Maia; she To supreme Jove bore me, and call'd me Hermes; Attendant on the king, his high behests I execute. To Delphi am I come, This land where Phoebus from his central throne Utters to mortals his high strain, declaring The present and the future; this is the cause; Greece hath a city of distinguish'd glory, Which from the goddess of the golden lance Received its name; Erechtheus was its king; His daughter, call'd Creusa, to the embrace Of nuptial love Apollo strain'd perforce, Where northward points the rock beneath the heights Crown'd with the Athenian citadel of Pallas, Call'd Macrai by the lords of Attica.
