This chariot was once the winged chariot of ..oos. Which charioteer then stopped it, that was challenging Zephyrus thanks to its horses? It was Amphithalassos and Aleiptos who destroyed those contenders who were rivals in the struggle for victory. Alive, they were a thousand times superior to all the others, the horses which won the crown to the joy of their party. After having achieved victory, they both left to their hometown the sweetness of memory when they went into the earth. - To you also.
