eucer I saw it with my own eyes; and the mind has sight. Helen Is Menelaos already at home with his wife? Teucer No; he is neither in Argos nor by the streams of the Eurotas. Helen Alas! This is evil news for those to whom you bring it. Teucer He is said to have disappeared with his wife. Helen Wasn't there the same passage for all the Argives? Teucer Yes; but a tempest scattered them in every direction. Helen On which surface of the salty ocean? Teucer While they were crossing the Aegean in mid-channel. Helen And from that time does no one know of Menelaos' arrival? Teucer No one; but throughout Hellas he is reported to be dead. Helen I am wholly lost. Is the daughter of Thestius alive? Teucer You speak of Leda? She is dead and gone, indeed. Helen It wasn't Helen's disgraceful fame that killed her, surely? Teucer Yes, they say she tied a noose around her noble neck.

For I would not satisfy you with the tale, and by telling you these evils I would suffer still, as I did when I experienced them; and so my grief would be doubled. Helen Your answer is better than my question. Leave out the rest, and tell me only this: how long were you a weary wanderer over the surface of the sea? Menelaos Besides those ten years in Troy, I went through seven cycles of years on board ship. Helen Alas, poor man, you

Chorus Many of the Achaeans have breathed out their last amid the spears and hurling stones and have gone to unhappy Hades; their wives have cut off their hair in sorrow, and their homes are left without a bride; an Achaean man, who had only a single ship, lit a blazing beacon on sea-girt Euboia, and destroyed many of them, casting them onto the rocks of Kaphareus and the sea-shores of the Aegean, by the treacherous flame he kindled. The mountains of Malea provided no harbor, in the gusts of the storm, when Menelaos sped far away from his country, bearing on his ships a prize of the barbarian expedition, no prize but strife with the Danaans, Hera's holy phantom.
