Chorus [of the Danaids]
But to the rivers that pour their gentle draught through the land and increase the birth of children, soothing its soil with their fertilizing streams.

[1030] May pure Artemis look upon this band in compassion, and may marriage never come through Cytherea's compulsion. May that prize belong to my enemies!
