[105] aequora bina. Phaeedra tells Hippolytus that she is willing to share every fate with him, and can be deterred by no dangers. She is con-

tented to live with him, whether he chooses the woods or the cities. If he should prefer the woods, she will accompany him in all his diversions, and cheerfully submit to the fatigues of the chase. If the cities delight him, she is willing to live with him in Troezen, a place of his own choice. This was a city of Argolis in Peloponnesus. Here Pittheus reigned, who was father to aethra the mother of Theseus.
