Euripides, Heracles (ed. E. P. Coleridge), line 451 (search)
d you were to be king of Thebes, famed for its chariots, receiving as your heritage my broad lands, for so you coaxed your dear father; and to your hand he used to resign the carved club, his sure defence, pretending to give it to you. And to you he promised to give Oechalia, which once his archery had wasted. Thus with three principalities would your father exalt you, his three sons, proud of your manliness; while I was choosing the best brides for you, scheming to link you by marriage to Athens, Thebes, and Sparta, that you might live a happy life with a fast sheet-anchor to hold by. And now that is all vanished; fortune's breeze has veered and given to you for brides the maidens of death in their stead, and my tears will be the marriage bath; woe is me for my foolish thoughts! and your grandfather here is celebrating your marriage-feast, the cares of a father, accepting Hades as the father of your brides. Ah me! which of you shall I first press to my bosom, which last? on which

d. Amphitryon Is the monster really lodged in the house of Eurystheus? Heracles The grove of Demeter and the city of Hermione have him now. Amphitryon Eurystheus does not know that you have returned to the upper world? Heracles He does not; I came here first to learn your news. Amphitryon How is it you were so long beneath the earth? Heracles I stayed awhile attempting to bring back Theseus from Hades, father. Amphitryon Where is he? gone to his native land? Heracles He set out for Athens, glad to have escaped from the lower world. Come now, children, attend your father to the house. My entering in is fairer in your eyes, I think, than my going out. Oh, take heart, and no more let the tears stream from your eyes; you too, my wife, collect your courage, cease from fear; let go my robe; for I cannot fly away, nor have I any wish to flee from those I love. Ah! they do not loose their hold, but cling to my garments all the more; were you on the razor's edge of danger? Well, I m

the dearest of my friends will see the pollution I have incurred by my children's murder. Ah, woe is me! what am I to do? Where can I find freedom from my sorrows? shall I take wings or plunge beneath the earth? Come, let me veil my head in darkness; for I am ashamed of the evil I have done, and, since for these I have incurred fresh blood-guiltiness, I do not want to harm the innocent. Theseus and his retinue enter. Theseus I have come, and others with me, young warriors from the land of Athens, encamped by the streams of Asopus, to bring an allied army to your son, old friend. For a rumour reached the city of the Erechtheidae, that Lycus had usurped the scepter of this land and had become your enemy even to battle. Wherefore I came making recompense for the former kindness of Heracles in saving me from the world below, if you have any need of such aid as I or my allies can give, old man. Ha! why this heap of dead upon the floor? Surely I have not delayed too long and come too la

if you, a child of man, take your fate excessively hard, while they, as gods, do not? No, then, leave Thebes in compliance with the law, and come with me to the city of Pallas. There, when I have purified you of your pollution, I will give you homes and the half of all I have. Yes, I will give you all those presents I received from the citizens for saving their fourteen children, when I slew the bull of Crete; for I have plots of land assigned me throughout the country; these shall henceforth be called after you by men, while you live; and at your death, when you have gone to Hades' halls, the whole city of Athens shall exalt your honor with sacrifices and a monument of stone. For it is a noble crown of a good reputation for citizens to win from Hellas, by helping a man of worth. This is the return that I will make you for saving me, for now you are in need of friends. But when the gods honor a man, he has no need of friends; for the god's aid, when he chooses to give it, is enough.

own so abject in your sight? It was not so once, I think. Theseus Yes, too much so; in your sickness you are not the glorious Heracles. Heracles What about you? What kind of hero were you when in trouble in the world below? Theseus I was worse than anyone as far as courage went. Heracles How then can you say of me, that I am abased by my troubles? Theseus Forward! Heracles Farewell, my aged father! Amphitryon Farewell to you, my son! Heracles Bury my children as I said. Amphitryon But who will bury me, my son? Heracles I will. Amphitryon When wil you come? Heracles After you have buried my children. Amphitryon How? Heracles I will fetch you from Thebes to Athens. But carry my children within, a grievous burden to the earth. And I, after ruining my house by deeds of shame, will follow as a little boat in the wake of Theseus, totally destroyed. Whoever prefers wealth or might to the possession of good friends, thinks wrongly.Theseus and his attendants lead Heracles away.
