[56] Et tamen. 'He yet dares to look me in the face.' We must suppose this to be said in indignation; either at the confidence of Pyrrhus, in reproaching, to her face, the man whom he knew she loved; or the tameness of Orestes, in thus quietly leaving her to the insults of a rival. I have chosen to follow the former sense, as more natural, and agreeable to the tenor of the words.
