Euripides, Phoenissae (ed. E. P. Coleridge), line 1672 (search)
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.
