XIV

Translated from EVROPA SOBERANA


Thetis_Peleus_Cdm_Paris

The goddess Thetis, mother of Achilles, is called by Hesiod “of silver feet” (1007), and by Homer “of silvery feet” (Iliad, I: 538, 556, IX : 410; XVI : 574, XVIII : 369, 381, XIV:89). Needless to say that a brown-skinned woman cannot have silvery feet: this is an attribute of extremely pale women.
