(Stainless steel and ebony)
Female fame - cannot quell.
honor of the sex eternally shines
- never knell.
Now and ever, the world's delight
its splendor - bird in flight!
Illustrious women - pleasure had wrought,
extra dimension to lives had brought. Thais, one of many - fable immortal, dream of kings and beggars - yours and mine. Oh, thou sublime nectar divine!
A beautiful and famous courtesan of Athenian origin, who through her beauty and intelligence became also a mistress of the fourth century B. C. kings Alexander the Great and Ptolemy II of ancient Macedon.
