The one before the two [Thesis], however, he leaves unexpressed, his very silence being an intimation of its ineffable nature. The third principle after the two was engendered by these--Ge Gaea, Earth and Hydros Waterthat is--and was a Serpent Drakon with extra heads growing upon it of a bull and a lion, and a god's countenance in the middle; it had wings upon its shoulders, and its name was Khronos Chronos, Unaging Time and also Herakles. United with it was Ananke Inevitability, Compulsionbeing of the same nature, or Adrastea, incorporeal, her arms extended throughout the universe and touching its extremities.

I think this stands for the third principle, occuping the place of essence, only he [Orpheus] made it bisexual [as Phanes] to symbolize the universal generative cause.

And I assume that the theology of the [Orphic] Rhapsodies discarded the two first principles together with the one before the two, that was left unspoken [that is, the Orphics discarded the concepts of Thesis, Khronos Chronos and Ananke], and began from this third principle [Phanes] after the two, because this was the first that was expressible and acceptable to human ears. Indeed, in this theology too [the Hieronyman], this Khronos Timethe serpent has offspring, three in number: What is this triad, then?

The egg; the dyad of the two natures inside it male and female [Ouranos Uranus the Sky and Gaia Gaea the Earth], and the plurality of the various seeds between; and thirdly an incorporeal god with golden wings on his shoulders, bulls' heads growing upon his flanks, and on his head a monstrous serpent, presenting the appearance of all kinds of animal forms. And the third god of the third triad this theology too celebrates as Protogonos First-Born [Phanes], and it calls him Zeus the order of all and of the whole world, wherefore he is also called Pan All.

So much this second genealogy supplies concerning the Intelligible principles. This Herakles generated a huge egg [which formed the earth, sea and sky].

And again, three other sons [the Hekatonkheires Hecatoncheires ] were born of Gaia and Ouranos, great and doughty beyond telling, Kottos Cottus and Briareos Briareus and Gyes.

And she spoke, cheering them, while she was vexed in her dear heart: But great Kronos the wily took courage and answered his dear mother: And Ouranos came, bringing on night and longing for love, and he lay about Gaia spreading himself full upon her.

Then the son from his ambush stretched forth his left hand and in his right took the great long sickle with jagged teeth, and swiftly lopped off his own father's members and cast them away to fall behind him. And not vainly did they fall from his hand; for all the bloody drops that gushed forth Gaia received, and as the seasons moved round she bare the strong Erinyes Furies and the great Gigantes Giants with gleaming armour, holding long spears in their hands and the Nymphai Nymphs whom they call Meliai Meliae [honey- or ash-tree nymphs] all over the boundless earth.

Therefore he kept no blind outlook, but watched and swallowed down his children: But when she was about to bear Zeus, the father of gods and men, then she besought her own dear parents, Gaia and starry Ouranos, to devise some plan with her that the birth of her dear child might be concealed, and that retribution might overtake great, crafty Kronos for his own father and also for the children whom he had swallowed down.

And they readily heard and obeyed their dear daughter, and told her all that was destined to happen touching Kronos the king and his stout-hearted son.
