Old servant
My child, go inside, and stay beneath the shelter of your maiden chamber, now that you have had [195] your wish and seen all that you wanted; for a crowd of women is coming toward the royal palace, as confusion enters the city. Now women by nature love to find fault; and if they get some slight handle for their talk [200] they exaggerate it, for women seem to have pleasure in saying nothing wholesome about each other.Antigone and the old servant descend into the palace, as the Chorus of Phoenician Maidens enters.
