Chorus
[980] Ah! there I see the sepulchre ready even now for Capaneus, his consecrated tomb, and the votive offerings Theseus gives to the dead outside the shrine, and near to that lightning-smitten chief I see his noble bride, Evadne, [985] daughter of King Iphis. Why does she stand on the towering rock, which overtops this temple, advancing along the path?Evadne is seen on a rock which overhangs the burning pyre. She is dressed as though for a festival.
