Exit Death into the palace. Enter the Chorus, men of Pherae, by Eisodos B. They divide into two semi-choruses.

Semi-Chorus A
What means this stillness before the palace? Why is the house of Admetus wrapped in silence?

Semi-Chorus B
What is more, there are not even any of his kin about [80] who might say whether the queen has died and one should mourn her or whether Pelias' daughter still lives and looks on the light, Alcestis, the best of wives to her husband, [85] as I and everyone regard her.
