While Cadmus wondred at the hugenesse of the vanquisht foe Upon the sodaine came a voyce: from whence he could not know, But sure he was he heard the voyce.

He pale and wan for feare, Had lost his speach: and ruffled up stiffe staring stood his heare.

Leucothoe was the mothers name, Palemon was the sonne. The Thebane Ladies following hir as fast as they could runne, Did of hir feete perceive the print upon the utter stone. And taking it for certaine signe that both were dead and gone, In making mone for Cadmus house, they wrang their hands and tare Their haire, and rent their clothes, and railde on Juno out of square, As nothing just, but more outragious farre than did behove In so revenging of hir selfe upon hir husbands love. The Goddesse Juno could not beare their railing. And in faith: You also will I make to be as witnesses (she sayth) Of my outragious crueltie. And so shee did in deede.
