Chorus Or to an island home, sent on a voyage of misery by oars that sweep the brine, leading a wretched existence in halls where the first-created palm and the bay-tree put forth their sacred shoots for dear Latona, a memorial of her divine birth-pains? and there with the maids of Delos shall I hymn the golden head-band and bow of Artemis, their goddess?
Euripides, Ion (ed. Robert Potter), line 907 (search)
Oh! son of Leto, I invoke you, who send forth your holy voice from your golden seat, your central throne, I shall announce it in your ear: O wicked lover, you received no favor from my husband, but you settle a child in the house for him; while my son and yours, unknown, is gone, plundered by birds, and has given up the baby-clothes from his mother. Delos hates you, and so do the laurel shoots beside the palm with delicate leaves, where Leto gave birth to you, a holy birth, in the plants of Zeus.

And you, O Latona, O Apollo, O Diana, whose (I will not say temples, but, as the universal opinion and religious belief agrees,) ancient birthplace and divine home at Delos he plundered by a nocturnal robbery and attack;—You, also, O Apollo, whose image he carried away from Chios;—You, again and again, O Diana, whom he plundered at Perga; whose most holy image at Segesta, where it had been twice consecrated—once by their own religious gift, and a second time by the victory of Publius Africanus—he dared to take away and remove;—And you, O Mercury, whom Verres had placed in his villa, and in some private palaestra, but whom Publius Africanus had placed in a city of the allies. and in the gymnasium of the Tyndaritans, as a guardian and protector of the youth of the city;—

ides all this, seven sonnes I have and daughters seven likewise, By whome shall shortly sonneinlawes and daughtrinlawes arise. Judge you now if that I have cause of statelynesse or no. How dare ye then prefer to me Latona that same fro The Titan Ceus ympe, to whome then readie downe to lie The hugy Earth a little plot to childe on did denie? From Heaven, from Earth, and from the Sea your Goddesse banisht was, And as an outcast through the world from place to place did passe, Untill that Delos pitying hir, sayde Thou doste fleete on land And I on Sea, and thereupon did lende hir out of hand A place unstable. Of two twinnes there brought abed was she: And this is but the seventh part of the issue borne by me. Right happie am I. Who can this denie? and shall so still I Continue. Who doth doubt of that? Abundance hath and will Preserve me. I am greater than that frowarde fortune may Empeache me. For although she should pull many things away, Yet should she leave me many more. My st

Here with contrary winds we stayed six weeks, and in the end, having the winde prosperous, we sailed by Nicaria , Pharos, Delos , and Andros , with sight of many other Ilands in the Archipelago, and arrived at the two castles in Hellespont the 24 of August. Within few dayes after we came to Galipoli some thirty miles from this place, where foure of us tooke a Parma or boat of that place, with two watermen, which rowed us along the Thracian shore to Constantinople, which sometime sailing and sometime rowing, in foure dayes they performed. The first of September we arrived at the famous port of the Grand Signior
