In his 1534 Latin poem on the illness of the Polish King Sigismundus I that was a consequence of his hunting expedition, Marcin Kromer introduces the myth of Cephalus and Procris. Borrowing the subject from Ovid (Met. VII 690-862), Kromer presents only the last part of the history of this unhappy couple and does not dwell on the husband's and wife's emotions as much as his predecessor. This passage seems important as we see here the first use of this myth by a Polish author.
