“Earth, heaven, and sea he made with an unwearied sun, and moon waxing.
All the stars, too, which crown the night sky: Pleiades, Hyades, Orion.
The Great Bear, too, also known as the Wain attended the mighty hunter,
And she pivoted there, unable ever to swim in the ocean current.”

[Homer’s Iliad, Book 18, lines 483-489 Vail’s translation]
