Orestes Yes, from Mycenae, which was once prosperous. Iphigenia Have you left your country as an exile, or by what fate? Orestes My flight is in some manner willed and unwilled. Iphigenia Could you then tell me something that I wish to know? Orestes It will be no great addition to my own misfortune. Iphigenia Indeed, I am so glad that you have come from Argos! Orestes I am not; but if you are, take pleasure in it. Iphigenia Perhaps you know Troy, whose fame is everywhere. Orestes Would that I did not, even seen in a dream! Iphigenia They say it is no more, lost to the spear. Orestes It is so; you have heard nothing that has not happen

Orestes He is dead, as the story goes in Mycenae. Iphigenia O goddess, how good that is! What about Odysseus? Orestes He has not yet returned, but is alive, they say.

Iphigenia Which of you is called by the name of Pylades? I want to know this first. Orestes That one, if you have any pleasure in the knowledge. Iphigenia Of what city of Hellas were you born a citizen? Orestes What would you gain by learning this, lady? Iphigenia Are you brothers, from one mother? Orestes By friendship, yes; we are not brothers by birth, lady. Iphigenia What name did your father give you? Orestes I might rightly be called Unfortunate. Iphigenia I do not ask that; as back to Menelaus' home? Orestes She has; it was an unfortunate arrival for one dear to me. Iphigenia And where is she? She deserves an ill turn from me also. Orestes She lives at Sparta with her former bedfellow. Iphigenia Creature hated by Hellas, not by me alone! Orestes I have also had some benefit from the marriage of that woman!
