O Pallas, daughter of all-powerful Zeus! not with distrust shall we receive your words; I am convinced that Phoebus is my father and she is my mother.—and that I did not doubt before.

Hear now my words also; I praise Phoebus, whom I did not praise before; [1610] because he gives back to me the child that he once neglected. These gates are lovely to my eyes, and the oracles of the god, which were hostile before. But now I gladly cling to the handle of the door and address the gates.

I am glad that you have changed your mind and praise the god; for always [1615] the gifts of Heaven are somehow slow, but at the end they are not weak.

My son, let us go home.

Go; I will escort you.

A worthy guide for us.

And friendly to the city.

Sit on the ancient throne.

A worthy possession for me.Ion, Creusa and Athena leave the stage.

O son of Leto and Zeus, Apollo, hail! The one whose house is striken [1620] by misfortune must have courage and honor the gods; for, at the end, the good obtain what they have deserved, but the bad by nature can never fare well.
