Aeschines, Against Timarchus, section 125 (search)
But it seems that we are to have another argument, too, concocted by the same sophist. For he says that nothing is more unjust than common report, and he goes to the market-place for his evidence, the sort of thing that is quite in harmony with his own life. He says firstSome of Aeschines' anticipations of the arguments of his opponents would be possible in the preparation of his speech for the court-room; others were probably added to the speech as prepared for publication, after the speeches for the defence had been heard. Probably some of these were given extempore in court. that the apartment house in Colonus which is called Demon's is falsely named, for it does not belong to Demon. Again, that the herm called “the Herm of Andocides” is not that of Andocides, but a votive offering of the tribe Aege

hena Farewell to you also; but I must lead the way to show you your dwellings by the sacred light of these, your escorts.The Chorus is now to be solemnly conducted to the cave beneath the Hill of Ares, the seat of the worship of the Venerable Ones (*semnai/, l. 1041), with whom the poet here identifies the Erinyes, the Angry Ones, the Avenging Spirits. The identification seems also to include the Eumenides, the Kindly Ones, who were worshipped at Sicyon, at Argos, and in Attica at Phlya and Colonus (see Soph. OT). The procession is formed by Athena (at its head), the Chorus, the Areopagites, torch-bearers, the women who guard the Palladium, and various others. In the rear came the Athenian public.Go, and, speeding beneath the earth with these solemn sacrifices, hold back what is ruinous to the land, but send what is profitable for the city to win her victory. You who hold the city, children of Cranaus,Cranaus was the mythical founder of the “rocky city” (kranao/s “rocky

is assigned by Athenaeus xi.14, pp. 465ff., also on the authority of the author of the Thebaid . And having come with Antigone to Colonus in Attica, where is the precinct of the Eumenides, he sat down there as a suppliant, was kindly received by Theseus, and died not long afterwards.Th, are the subject of Sophocles's noble tragedy, Oedipus Coloneus. As to the sanctuary of the Eumenides, see that play, Soph. OC 36ff. The knoll of Colonus is situated over a mile from Athens, and it is doubtful whether the poet intended to place the death and burial of Oedipus at Colonus or at Athens itself,l of Oedipus at Colonus or at Athens itself, where in later times the grave of Oedipus was shown in a precinct of the Eumenides, between the Acropolis and the Areopagus (Paus. 1.28.7).

He departs. Pisthetaerus Away with you, and take your prophecies elsewhere. Enter Meton, with surveying instruments. Meton I have come to you . . . Pisthetaerus Interrupting. Yet another pest! What have you come to do? What's your plan? What's the purpose of your journey? Why these splendid buskins? Meton I want to survey the plains of the air for you and to parcel them into lots. Pisthetaerus In the name of the gods, who are you? Meton Who am I? Meton, known throughout Greece and at Colonus. Pisthetaerus What are these things? Meton Tools for measuring the air. In truth, the spaces in the air have precisely the form of a furnace. With this bent ruler I draw a line from top to bottom; from one of its points I describe a circle with the compass. Do you understand? Pisthetaerus Not in the least. Meton With the straight ruler I set to work to inscribe a square within this circle; in its center will be the market-place, into which all the straight streets will lead, converging

Take another instance. We all know that Philostratus of Colonus was one of the accusers when ChabriasChabrias, with Callistratus, was tried for treachery in connection with the surrender of Oropus in 366. The defence of Callistratus is said to have roused the admiration of Demosthenes, then a youth. was tried for his life on charges relating to Oropus, and that he showed himself the bitterest of them all, and that afterwards he won the prize at the Dionysia with a chorus of boys. Yet Chabrias neither struck him nor snatched the crown off his head nor in any way intruded where he had no right.

Antigone Not so, father, but glory, if she is discreet. Oedipus Lead me near, so that I may touch your mother's corpse. Antigone There, embrace the aged form so dear to you. Oedipus O mother, o most wretched wife! Antigone Pitiably she lies, who suffered every evil at once. Oedipus Where are the corpses of Eteocles, and of Polyneices? Antigone Here they both lie, stretched out side by side. Oedipus Lay my blind hand upon their poor faces. Antigone There, touch the dead, your children. Oedipus O dear fallen sons, sad offspring of a sad father! Antigone 0 my brother Polyneices, name most dear to me! Oedipus Now the oracle of Loxias is being fulfilled, my child. Antigone What oracle? Do you have further woes to tell? Oedipus That I should die in Athens after a life of wandering. Antigone Where? What fenced town in Attica will take you in? Oedipus Hallowed Colonus, home of the god of horses. Come then, attend on your blind father, since you are eager to share his exile.

this maiden, who has sight both for herself and for me,that you have arrived as a scout of good fortune for the solving of our doubts— Enter a stranger, a man of Colonus. Stranger Now, before you question me at length, leave this seat. You occupy ground which is unholy to tread upon. Oedipus And what is this ground? To which of Titan Prometheus. But as for the spot on which you tread, it is called the bronze threshold of this land, the support of Athens. And the neighboring fields claim Colonus, the horse-rider, for their ancient ruler;and all the people bear his name in common as their own. Such, you see, stranger, are these haunts. They receive their h through story, but rather through our living with them. Oedipus Are there indeed dwellers in this region? Stranger Yes indeed, the namesakes of that god there [Colonus]. Oedipus Have they a king? Or does speaking [in assembly] rest with the masses? Stranger These parts are ruled by the king in the city. Oedipus And who is he

The Chorus of elders of Colonus enters the orchestra. Chorus Look! Who was he, then? Where is he staying? Where has he rushed from this place,man most insatiate of all who live? Scan the ground, look well, press the search everywhere. A wanderer that old man must have been,a wanderer, not a dweller in the land; otherwise he never would have advanced into this untrodden grove of the maidens with whom none may strive.Their name we tremble to speak; we pass them by with eyes turned away, moving our lips, without sound or word, in still devotion. But now it is said that one has come who reveres them not at all;and him I cannot yet discern, though I look round all the holy place, nor do I know where to find his lodging. Oedipus steps forward with Antigone. Oedipus Behold the man you seek! In sound is my sight, as the saying goes. Chorus Oh! Oh! Fearful he is to see, and fearful to hear! Oedipus Do not regard me, I beg you, as a lawless man. Chorus Zeus defend us! Who may this old man b

Chorus Stranger, in this land of fine horses you have come to earth's fairest home, the shining Colonus.Here the nightingale, a constant guest, trills her clear note under the trees of green glades, dwelling amid the wine-dark ivyand the god's inviolate foliage, rich in berries and fruit, unvisited by sun, unvexed by the wind of any storm. Here the reveller Dionysus ever walks the ground,companion of the nymphs that nursed him.

ho is mine. Oedipus Lords of the land! Chorus Stranger, you are acting unjustly. Creon Justly. Chorus How? Creon I take my own. He lays his hand on Antigone. Oedipus Oh, city ! Chorus What are you doing, stranger? Release her!Your strength and ours will soon come to the test. Creon Stand back! Chorus Not while this is your purpose. Creon There will be war with Thebes for you, if you harm me. Oedipus Did I not say so? Chorus Unhand the girl at once! Creon Do not make commands where you are not the master. Chorus Let go, I tell you! CreonTo his guards, who seize Antigone. And I tell you: be off! Chorus Help, men of Colonus, bring help! The city, our city, is attacked by force! Come to our aid! Antigone I am being dragged away in misery. Strangers, strangers! Oedipus My child, where are you? Antigone I am led off by force. Oedipus Give me your hand, my child! Antigone I am helpless. Creon Away with you! Oedipus I am wretched, wretched!The guards exit with Antigone.
