[207] Nec pater est Priamo. My father Priam is not the son of one who murdered his father-in-law, as was Atreus the son of Pelops, and adoptive father of Menelaus; for Pelops contending for Hippodamia in a chariot-race with her father oenomaus, the latter, by treachery, lost his life, his daughter, and his kingdom.
