“‘Let us say, then…'” / Memorable Fancies #1480

“There is a spring on Taenarum; but now it possesses nothing marvellous. Formerly, as they say, it showed harbours and ships to those who looked into the water. These sights were brought to an end by a woman washing dirty clothes in it.” – Pausanias [writing about 160 AD/CE on his visit to Greece]

Let us say, then, that a woman did it; that before women came, marvelous were the sights.     <END>
