Bacchylides, Fragment 725 (trans. Campbell, Vol. Greek Lyric IV) (Greek lyric C5th B.C.) :
"Athene was like a beautiful, tall woman--Homer conveys by this means the comeliness and modesty of her appearance, just like Xenophon and Telesilla of Argos in their representation of Arete (Virtue) and Kalokagathia (Nobility)."
