Greek Anthology 9.48 (tr. W.R. Paton):
Through love Zeus became a swan for Leda, a bull for Europa, a satyr for Antiope, and gold for Danae.

Ζεὺς κύκνος, ταῦρος, σάτυρος, χρυσὸς δι᾽ ἔρωτα
    Λήδης, Εὐρώπης, Ἀντιόπης, Δανάης.
I would retain the Greek word order when translating, thus:
Zeus became a swan, a bull, a satyr, gold, for love of
    Leda, Europa, Antiope, Danaë.
