Euripides, Rhesus (ed. E. P. Coleridge), line 164 (search)
Hector Yes, that is fair; I cannot dispute it. Name your wage, except for my sovereignty. Dolon I do not covet your toilsome sovereignty. Hector Well then, marry a daughter of Priam and become my brother-in-law. Dolon No, I do not wish to marry among those beyond my station. Hector There's gold, if this you'll claim as your prize. Dolon I have it in my home; I lack no sustenance. Hector What then is your desire of all that Ilium stores within her? Dolon Promise me my gift when you conquer the Achaeans. Hector I will give it to you; ask anything except the captains of the fleet. Dolon Slay them; I do not ask you to keep your hand off Menelaus. Hector Is it the son of Oileus you would ask me for? Dolon Hands that are well brought up are worthless at farming. Hector Whom then of the Achaeans will you have alive to hold to ransom? Dolon I told you before, my house is stored with gold. Hector Why then, you shall come and with your own hands choose out some spoil. Dolon

Chorus May he come to the ships! May he reach the army of Hellas and spy it out, then turn again and reach the altars of his father's home in Ilium! May he mount the chariot drawn by Phthia's horses, when our master has sacked Achaea's camp, those horses that the sea-god gave to Peleus, son of Aeacus.

have no need of those who did not share our toils long since, when Ares, driving all before him, was rending the sails of our ship of state with his tempestuous blast. Rhesus has shown the friendship he then bore to Troy; for he comes to the feast, although he was not with the hunters when they took the prey, nor did he join his spear with theirs. Chorus Leader You are right to scorn and blame such friends; yet welcome those who wish to help the state. Chorus Leader We who have long kept Ilium safe are sufficient. Chorus Are you so sure you have already caught the foe? Hector I am sure; tomorrow's light will make that plain. Chorus Leader Beware of what may happen; often fortune veers about. Hector I loath the friend who brings his help too late. But let him, since he has arrived, come to our table not as an ally but as a guest; for the gratitude of Priam's sons is forfeit in his case. Chorus Leader O prince, to turn away allies earns hatred. Messenger His mere appearance

I cut my way; no shuffling nature is mine. My heart was wrung with sorer anguish than yours at my absence from this land; I fumed and chafed, but Scythian people, whose borders march with mine, made war on me on the very eve of my departure for Ilium; I had reached the strand of the Euxine sea, there to transport my Thracian army. Then my spear poured out over Scythia's land great drops of bloody rain, and Thrace too shared in the mingled slaughter. This then was what chanced to keep me fromime; ten years already have you been at the fray, and accomplished nothing yet; day in, day out, you fall, throwing the dice of war with Argives. But the light of one day will be enough for me to sack those towers and fall upon their anchored fleet and slay the Achaeans; and on the next day I will go home from Ilium , at one stroke ending all your toil. Let none of you lay hand to spear to lift it, for I, for all my late arrival, will with my lance make utter havoc of those vaunting Achaeans.

are ashamed, after all your previous toil, to have no share in firing their ships' prows, place me face to face with Achilles and his army. Hector Against that man you cannot range your eager spear. Rhesus Why, it was surely said he sailed to Ilium. Hector He sailed and he is here; but he is angry and takes no part with the other chieftains in the battle. Rhesus Who next to him has won a name in their army? Hector Aias and the son of Tydeus are, I take it, in no way his inferiors; thereutrage on this country. For he came by night to Athena's shrine and stole her image and took it to the Argive ships; next he came inside our battlements, clad as a vagrant in a beggar's garb, and loudly did he curse the Argives, sent as a spy to Ilium; and then went out again, when he had slain the sentinels and warders at the gate. He is always to be found lurking in ambush about the altar of Thymbrean Apollo near the city. In him we have a troubling pest to wrestle with. Rhesus No brave ma
