Additional Information

Histoire ancienne. Les nuits de Penelope.

De son époux absent l'adorable profil, toujours à ses doux yeux brillait comme une étoile. Maís pour tramer trois ans et sa ruse et sa toile il fallait qu'elle eut un fier fil.

English: Ancient History: The Nights of Penelope. The adorable profile of her absent spouse, was hanging quietly in her house. But to weave for three years, plot and more must have really made her quite a bore.
