For when the state of Troy decayd, the wicked king of Thrace Did cut his nurcechylds weazant, and (as though the sinfull cace Toogither with the body could have quyght beene put away) He threw him also in the sea. It happened by the way, That Agamemnon was compeld with all his fleete to stay Uppon the coast of Thrace, untill the sea were wexen calme, And till the hideous stormes did cease, and furious wynds were falne.
