Chorus
Of that goddess alone there are no altars, no statue to approach, [975] and to sacrifice she pays no heed. Do not, I pray you, Lady, come with greater force than heretofore in my life. For whatever Zeus ordains, with your help he brings it to fulfillment. [980] Even the iron of the Chalybes 1 you overcome with your violence, and there is no pity in your unrelenting heart.

1 A people living on the Black Sea, said to have invented the working of iron.
