Γαίης δ' ἐν γυάλοισιν ἔνερθε δὲ πόντος ἀπείρων·
ὤφθη δ’αὐλαίη ἐκ χάεος αἷα πελώρη˙
θαῦμα μέγ’ ὡς ἐκέλευεν ἐρισθενέος λόγος αἰπύς˙
ἤπειρον δ’ ἐκάλλεσε γαίαν ὑγρὰν δὲ θάλασσαν.

Critical Notes ἔνερθε δὲ πόντος] scripsi ex ἑνὸς τε ἐπόντος (l. ἀνέστενε πόντος) DeCavalieri
Comment In verse one, which is otherwise metrically problematic, γαίης δ' ἐν γυάλοισιν ἔνερθε δὲ πόντος ἀπείρων would be a likely reading. Cf. Moschus, Europa, 133: ἀλλ’ ἀὴρ μὲν ὕπερθεν ἔνερθε δὲ πόντος ἀπείρων.
