h of many horses, many arms. Antigone Are the gates barred, and the brazen bolts fitted into Amphion's walls of stone? Old servant Never fear! All is safe within the town. But see the first one, if you want to know him. Antigone Who is that one with the white crest, who marches before the army, lightly bearing on his arm a shield all of bronze? Old servant A captain, mistress. Antigone Who is he? Who is his family? Tell me his name, old man. Old servant He claims to be Mycenaean; by Lerna's streams he dwells, the lord Hippomedon. Antigone Ah, ah! How proud, how fearful to see, like an earth-born giant, with stars engraved on his shield, not resembling mortal race. Old servant Do you see the one crossing Dirce's stream? Antigone His armor is quite different. Who is that? Old servant Tydeus, the son of Oeneus, Aetolian battle-spirit in his breast.

Antigone O Nemesis, and roaring thunder-peals of Zeus and blazing lightning-bolts, oh! put to sleep his presumptuous boasting! This is the man who says he will give the Theban girls as captives of his spear to the women of Mycenae, to Lerna's trident, and the waters of Amymone, dear to Poseidon, when he has them enslaved. Never, never, Lady Artemis, golden-haired child of Zeus, may I endure that slavery.

n my own house. Polyneices And keep more than your share? Eteocles Yes. Leave the country! Polyneices O altars of my fathers' gods— Eteocles Which you are here to destroy. Polyneices Hear me— Eteocles Who would hear you after you have marched against your fatherland? Polyneices And temples of the gods who ride on white horses— Eteocles And who hate you. Polyneices I am being driven from my country— Eteocles Yes, for you came to destroy it. Polyneices Unjustly, O gods! Eteocles Call on the gods at Mycenae, not here. Polyneices You have become unholy— Eteocles But I have not, like you, become my country's enemy. Polyneices By driving me out without my portion. Eteocles And I will kill you in addition. Polyneices O father, do you you hear what I am suffering? Eteocles Yes, and he hears what you are doing. Polyneices And you, mother? Eteocles It is not lawful for you to mention your mother. Polyneices O my city! Eteocles Go to Argos, and invoke the waters of Ler
