Sophocles, Trachiniae (ed. Sir Richard Jebb), line 507 (search)
Chorus One was a mighty river-god, the form of a bull, high-horned and four-legged,Achelous, from Oeniadae. The other came from Thebes, home of Bacchus, brandishing his resilient bow, his spears and club; he was the son of Zeus. These two then met in a mass, lusting to win a bride,and the Cyprian goddess of nuptial joy was there with them, acting as sole umpire.

Heracles Ah! Ah, misery! I am lost, ruined, ruined! The light of day exists for me no more!Ah, now I understand the depth of my misfortune! Go, my son! Your father is no more. Summon for me all the crop of your brothers. Summon, too, poor Alcmena, in vain the bedfellow of Zeus, so thatyou may hear my final words tell what oracles I know. Hyllus I cannot. Your mother is not here. It happens that she keeps her home at Tiryns by the sea. Some of your children she has taken to raise with her there, and others, you will find, are dwelling in Thebes.But we who are with you, Father, will render at your command all service that is needed.
