o your cost—your present cost! Chorus Leader In the gods' name, don't dare to strike a herald! Demophon I will, unless the herald learns some sense. Chorus Leader Be off! To Demophon And you, my lord, do not touch him. Herald I am going: a single man can put up only a weak fight. But I shall return with a great force of Argive soldiers in full armor. Ten thousand targeteers are waiting for me with Eurystheus their lord as general. He is standing by on the edge of Alcathous' land,Megara, neighboring territory to Attica. awaiting the outcome of events here. When he hears of your insolence, he will appear in his fury to you, your citizens, your land, and its crops. There would be no point in Argos' possessing so great an army of young men if we did not punish you. Demophon Clear out! I am not afraid of your Argos.

Iolaus This man, strangers, dishonors your gods and drags me by force from the altar steps. Chorus But you, old sir, from what land have you come to this people who dwell together in four cities?The Marathonian tetrapolis (Marathon, Oenoe, Probalinthus, and Tricorythus) was an old confederacy of towns that existed before the unification of Attica under Theseus. Have you left the shore of Euboea and put in from beyond the water with sea-going oar? Iolaus It is no islander's life that I live. We have come to your land from Mycenae. Chorus What is the name the people of Mycenae call you? Iolaus You know, I'm sure, of Iolaus, the man who stood at Heracles' side. I am not unknown to fame. Chorus I have heard of you before.
