The Iliad: Homer translated by Alexander Pope

When Circe entertains Ulysses in her palace, a bath is prepared for his reception, after which he is anointed with costly perfumes and robed in magnificent attire. The bath was the first refreshment offered to a distinguished guest. "Now, from nocturnal sweat and sanguine stain, They cleanse their bodies in. the neighbouring main; Then in the polished bath, refreshed from toil, Their joints they supple with dissolving oil: In due repast indulge the genial hour, And first to Pallas their libations pour; They sit, rejoicing in her aid divine, And the crown'd goblet foams with floods of wine."
