s. Talthybius Why! is it not an honor that she should win our monarch's love? Hecuba What have you done to her whom recently you took from me, my child? Talthybius Do you mean Polyxena, or whom do you inquire about? Hecuba Yes, that one; to whom has the lot assigned her? Talthybius To minister at Achilles' tomb has been appointed her. Hecuba Woe is me! I the mother of a dead man's slave! What custom, what ordinance is this among Hellenes, friend? Talthybius Count your daughter happy; it is well with her. Hecuba What wild words are these? Please tell me, is she still alive? Talthybius Her fate is one that sets her free from trouble. Hecuba And what of the wife of Hector skilled in arms, sad Andromache? declare her fate. Talthybius She too was a chosen prize; Achilles' son took her. Hecuba As for me whose hair is white with age, who need to hold a staff to be to me a third foot, whose servant am I to be? Talthybius Odysseus, king of Ithaca, has taken you to be his slave.

In the first place, whether there is a slur upon a woman, or whether there is not, the very fact of her not staying at home brings in its train an evil name; therefore I gave up any longing to do so, and stayed within my house; nor wouldm, and where it was best to yield. Report of this has reached the Achaean army, and proved my ruin; for when I was taken captive, Achilles' son would have me as his wife, and I must serve in the house of murderers. And if I set aside my love for Hector, and open my heart to this new lord, I shall appear a traitress to the dead, while, if I hate him, I shall incur my master's displeasure. And yet they say a single night removes a woman's dislike for her husband; I despise the woman who, when sh

O my dear Hector, in you I found a husband amply dowered with wisdom, noble birth and fortune, a brave man and a mighty; while you took from my father's house a spotless bride, yourself the first to make this maiden wife. But now death has claimed you, and I am soon to sail to Hellas, a captive doomed to wear the yoke of slavery. Has not then the dead Polyxena, for whom you wail, less evil to bear than I? I have not so much as hope, the last resource of every human heart, nor do I beguile mysld to fortune and commit themselves to the driving billows. Even so I, by reason of my countless troubles, am speechless and forbear to say a word; for this surge of misery from the gods is too strong for me. Cease, my darling child, to speak of Hector's fate; no tears of yours can save him; honor your present master, offering your sweet nature as the bait to win him. If you do this, you will cheer your friends as well as yourself and you shalt rear my Hector's child to lend stout aid to Ilium
