The adventures of Io 5

Iuppiter, rēx deōrum, pulchram Īō amat; tum īram Iūnōnis metuit. Mūtat igitur fōrmam Īōnis: “Iūnō nōn puellam, sed bovem vidēbit,” Iuppiter cōgitat. Iūnō nōn stulta est: “Habēsne dōnum, mī vir? Dabisne bellam bovem Iūnōnī? Dā, sī mē amās!” Iuppiter igitur Iūnōnī bovem dat. Cum bove remanet magnus custōs, Argus. Argus cemtum oculōs habet. Mercurius Argum superat, sed Īō nōndum lībera est: malus asīlus cum bove manet. Īō errat per terrās; multōs populōs videt, sed vēram fōrmam suam nōn habet. Misera puella! Habēbisne semper fōrmam bovis? Nōnne satis est tua poena? Īra Iūnōnis nōn perpetua est: Iuppiter Īōnī vēram fōrmam dat; tum Īō fīlium gignit. Centum oculōs Argī vidēbitis in caudā pāvōnis.

__Iuppiter, rēx deōrum, pulchram Īō amat; tum īram Iūnōnis metuit. Jupiter, king of the gods, loves the beautiful Io; then he fears Juno's anger. Mūtat igitur fōrmam Īōnis: “Iūnō nōn puellam, sed bovem vidēbit,” Iuppiter cōgitat. So he changes Io's form: "Juno will not see the girl, but a cow," Jupiter thinks. Iūnō nōn stulta est: “Habēsne dōnum, mī vir? Juno is not foolish: "Do you have a gift, my husband? Dabisne bellam bovem Iūnōnī? Will you give the beautiful cow to Juno? Dā, sī mē amās!” Iuppiter igitur Iūnōnī bovem dat. Give it, if you love me!" Jupiter, therefore, gives the cow to Juno. Cum bove remanet magnus custōs, Argus. With the cow remains the great guard, Argus. Argus cemtum oculōs habet. Argus has a hundred eyes. Mercurius Argum superat, sed Īō nōndum lībera est: malus asīlus cum bove manet. Mercury overcomes Argus, but Io is not yet free: an evil gadfly remains with the cow. Īō errat per terrās; multōs populōs videt, sed vēram fōrmam suam nōn habet. Io wanders through the lands; she sees many people but does not have her true form. Misera puella! Poor girl! Habēbisne semper fōrmam bovis? Will you always have the form of a cow? Nōnne satis est tua poena? Is your punishment not enough? Īra Iūnōnis nōn perpetua est: Iuppiter Īōnī vēram fōrmam dat; tum Īō fīlium gignit. Juno's anger is not perpetual: Jupiter gives Io her true form; then Io gives birth to a son. Centum oculōs Argī vidēbitis in caudā pāvōnis.__ You will see the hundred eyes of Argus in the peacock's tail.
