Aeschylus’ Amymone (A.5)

Amymone in the Argive countryside

while there
she attracts the attention of a Satyr
who attempts to rape her

she screams for help from Poseidon

Poseidon appears
putting the satyr to flight
then he himself makes love to Amymone

When they are finished
Poseidon strikes the ground with his trident
creating for her THE SPRING OF LERNA.

The Fragment…

POSEIDON
It is your fate to be wedded and mine to wed.
