father utterly, because he who begot such sons is blind. For my daughters here did not act in this way.This supplication of yours, and this throne of yours, will lie in the power of my curses, if indeed Justice, revealed long ago, sits beside Zeus, to share his throne through sanction of primordial laws.

There is no way in which you can ever overthrow that city. Before that you will fall, polluted by bloodshed, and so too your brother.Such curses as my heart before now sent up against you both, I now invoke to fight for me, in order that you may
