The Chorus of Old Men of Thebes enters.

To the sheltering roof, to the old man's couch, leaning on my staff have I set forth, [110] chanting a plaintive dirge like some bird grown grey, I that am only a voice and a fancy bred of the visions of sleep by night, palsied with age, yet meaning kindly. All hail! you orphaned children! [115] all hail, old friend! you too, unhappy mother, wailing for your husband in the halls of Hades!
