Oedipus On what topic? That suppliant state is of no small account. Theseus He asks, they say, no more than that he may confer with you,and return unharmed from his journey here.

Theseus And who can he be, that I should have an objection to him? Oedipus My son, lord, a hated son whose words would vex my ear like the words of no man besides. Theseus What?
