Woe is me! Ho! my Thracian spearmen, armed, [1090] a race of knights whom Ares inspires! Ho! Achaeans! sons of Atreus! To you I loudly call; come here, by the gods! Does any one hearken, or will no one help me? Why do you delay? Women, captive women have destroyed me. [1095] A fearful fate is mine; ah me! my hideous outrage! Where can I turn or go? [1100] Shall I take wings and soar aloft to the mansions of the sky, where Orion and Sirius dart from their eyes [1105] a flash as of fire, or shall I, in my misery, plunge to Hades' murky flood?
