Homeric Hymn 4 to Hermes, 17-19
Hermes grows up fast.
ἠῷος γεγονὼς μέσῳ ἤματι ἐγκιθάριζεν,
ἑσπέριος βοῦς κλέψεν ἑκηβόλου Ἀπόλλωνος
τετράδι τῇ προτέρῃ, τῇ μιν τέκε πότνια Μαῖα.
Born at dawn, by midday he was playing on the lyre; in the evening he stole the cattle of Apollo the far-shooter, on the fourth of the month, the day when lady Maia gave birth to him.
