"He has fifty daughters, whom some people call very beautiful, but we do not think it proper to be acquainted with them, because they have sea-green hair and taper away like fishes.

Hercules then asked whereabouts the Old One was most likely to be met with. When the damsels had informed him, he thanked them for all their kindness-for the bread and grapes with which they had fed him, the lovely flowerwith which they had crowned him, and the songs and dances wherewith they had done him honor; and he thanked them most of all for telling him the right way-and immediately set forth upon his journey.
