Odysseus This is the headland of sea-washed Lemnos, land untrodden by men and desolate. It was here, child bred of the man who was the noblest of the Greeks, Neoptolemus son of Achilles, that I exposedlong ago the native of Malis, Poeas' son, on the express command of the two chieftains to do so, because his foot was all running with a gnawing disease. Neither libation nor burnt sacrifice could be attempted by us in peace, but with his wild, ill-omened crieshe filled the whole camp continually with shrieking, moaning. But what need is there to speak of that? The time is not ripe for too many words, lest he even learn that I am here, and I so waste the whole ruse whereby I think soon to take him.Come, it is your task to serve as my ally in what remains, and to seek where in this region there is a cave with two mouths. During cold weather it provides two seats facing the sun, while in summer a breeze wafts sleep through the tunnelled chamber.And a little below, on the left hand, p

fore your eyes. Philoctetes Ah, me, I am sold, destroyed! It was he, then, who entrapped me and robbed me of my arms. Odysseus Yes, I and no other. I avow it. Philoctetes Give back my bow, boy, give it up. Odysseus That he shall never do, even if he wished to. And, what is more, you must come along with it, or my men will bring you by force. Philoctetes Me, you basest and boldest of scoundrels,they will take me by force? Odysseus Unless you come of your own free will. Philoctetes O Lemnos, and you all-conquering flame kindled by Hephaestus, will you indeed endure it that this man should take me from your domain by force? Odysseus Zeus it is, I tell you, Zeus, who rules this land,and it is by Zeus that these actions are decreed. I am his servant. Philoctetes Hated creature, what clever pleading you devise! By sheltering yourself behind the gods, you make the gods liars. Odysseus No, but true prophets. Now our march must begin. Philoctetes Never! Odysseus Now, I say. Yo

however, is my inborn desire in every field—save with regard to you. To you, in this case, I will gladly give way. Yes, release him, and lay not another finger upon him.Let him stay here. We have no further need of you, now that we have these weapons. For Teucer is there among our forces, well-skilled in this craft, as am I, and I believe that I can master this bow in no way worse than you, and point it with no worse a hand.So what need is there of you? Farewell! Enjoy your strolls on Lemnos! We must be going. And perhaps your onetime prize will bring me the honor which ought to have been your own. Philoctetes Ah, no, what shall I do? Are you to shine before the Argives graced with my arms? Odysseus Argue with me no more. I am going. Philoctetes Seed of Achilles, will you, too, grant me your voice no more, but leave without a word? To Neoptolemus. Odysseus Come on! Do not look at him, kind and noble though you are. Do not obliterate our good fortune. To the Chorus. Ph

ommands! Neoptolemus I, too, consent. Heracles Then do not long delay,for the occasion and the fair wind there at your stern urge you forward. Philoctetes Come, then, let me hail this land as I depart. Farewell, chamber that shared my watches. Farewell,nymphs of stream and meadow, and you, strong pounding of the sea-lashed cape, where often in the cavern's inmost recess my head was wetted by the south wind's blasts, and where many times the Hermaean mount sent an echoto my sad groans in the gale of my sorrow! But now, clear springs and Lycian fount, I am leaving you, leaving you at last, though such a hope had never buoyed me! Farewell, sea-wrapped Lemnos,and send me off with sailing fair to my heart's content, send me to the destination appointed me by mighty Fate and the will of my friends, and by the all-taming god who has brought these things to pass. Chorus Now let us all leave together,once we have prayed to the nymphs of the sea to come be the guides of our safe return.
