Question

Please translate:
Lydia Arachne, pertissima omnium puellarum quae telas texebant, per urbes Lydias arte sua erat praeclarissima. Iter ex urbibus vicinis faciebant multi, qui curiosi Arachnen telas texentem spectare volebant. Etiam nymphae, silvis et montibus et undis relictis, as casam Arachnes veniebant. Omnes mirabantur non modo telas textas sed etiam artem qua texabat. Minerva ipsa arachnen docuisse dicebatur, sed puella hoc vehementer negavit. “Nulla dea,” unquit, “mihi magistra fuit! Si dea ipsa advenerit certamen non vitabo!”
Quo audito, Minerva Arachnen visitatura anum simulavit et baculo innixa ad puellam superbam venit. In casam ingressa sic locuta est: “Audi me monentem! Famam pete inter mortales sed cede deae venimque tuis dictis, temeraria, roga! Veniam dabit dea. Roganti!”
“Abi, anus!” clamavit Arachne. “Noli me monere!” Mirata tamen est cur dea ipsa non vennisset, cur certamen vitaret. Tum dea, “Veni!” inquit et formam simulatam deposuit. Quamquam dea se ostenderat, puella tamen non timiut, immo certamen proposuit.
Tum ambae, *** ad telas consedissent, picturas pulcherrimas texere coeperunt. Operibus confectis, tela Minervae nullo modo melior erat tela Arachnes. Minerva facta est dea. Arachne, ferociter a dea castigata, se laqueo suspendit.
Puellae pendentis miserita est Minerva, quae sic locuta est: “Vive, superba! Sed vive, forma araneae sumpta!
Arachne, capite statim deminuto, ipsa toto corpore parva facta est. Adhuc tamen filum deducens aranea telam texit.
