Asian Bacchae— Chorus
Why do you excite me, oh? Agave
I am bringing home from the mountain a  freshly cut tendril to the house, blessed prey. Chorus
I see it and will accept you as a fellow reveler. Agave
I caught this young wild lion cub without snares,  as you can see. Chorus
From what desert? Agave
slew him. Chorus
Who struck him? Agave
The honor is mine first.  I am called blessed Agave in the revels. Chorus
Who else? Agave
Kadmos' what? Agave
His other offspring took hold of this beast after me, after me. This is a lucky catch! Chorus
