The sun’s road, the sea’s road

. . . ἦρχε δ᾽ ἄρα σφιν
Ἑρμείας ἀκάκητα κατ᾽ εὐρώεντα κέλευθα
πὰρ δ᾽ ἴσαν Ὠκεανοῦ τε ῥοὰς καὶ Λευκάδα πέτρην
ἠδὲ παρ᾽ Ἠελίοιο πύλας καὶ δῆμον ὀνείρων
ἤϊσαν . . .

. . . and he led them then,
innocuous Hermes, down the paths of decay,
and they went past the streams of Ocean and the White Rock
and past the gates of Helios and the deme of dreams
they went . . .

Odyssey 24.9–13
