Chorus
Oh, oh, friends! raise a din, a din and shouting before the house, that the murder when done [1355] may not inspire the Argives with wild alarm, to make them bring aid to the palace, before I see for certain that Helen's corpse lies bloody in the house, or hear the news from one of her attendants; [1360] for I know a part of the tragedy, of the rest I am not sure.

In justice, retribution from the gods has come to Helen; for she filled all Hellas with tears, through that accursed, accursed Paris of Ida, [1365] who drew Hellas to Troy.
