Meanwhile , as Psyche was scouring the earth , bent on her search for Cupid , he lay groaning with the pain of the burn in his mother’s chamber . At this point a tern , that pure white bird which skims over the sea-waves in its flight , plunged down swiftly to the very bottom of the sea .
Interim , dum Psyche quaestioni Cupidinis intenta populos circumibat , ille vulnere lucernae dolens in ipso thalamo matris iacens ingemebat . Tunc avis peralba illa gavia , quae super fluctus marinos pinnis natat , demergit sese propere ad Oceani profundum gremium .
Psyche wandered through the land , seeking Cupid , while he lay in his mother’s chamber groaning with pain from his scorched shoulder . Meanwhile a snow-white bird , the seagull that skims the surface of the sea , dived swiftly beneath the ocean waves .

Rimuš , king of the world - from ancient times for the god Enlil no one a statue of meteoric iron had fashioned . ( But ) Rimuš , king of the world , a statue of himself of meteoric iron he fashioned , and in front of Enlil it ( now ) stands . ( Thus ) at the side of the gods himself he reckons ( ? ) . A person who this inscription shall obliterate , may Enlil and Šamaš his foundations tear out and his seed may they pluck out .
