Psyche, whom Venus, jealous of her beauty, wanted to match with someone unattractive. The result was, however, that Cupid entrusted with that mission, fell in love with her himself. Both got married under the condition that Psyche should never behold her husband with her eyes. He visited her every night till she, having learnt from her sister the secret of his identity, arranged a situation in which she could see him while he was sleeping. Her curiosity was punished by Venus; Cupid left her for good the other morning.
