Antigone
[806] Citizens of my fatherland, see me setting out on my last journey, looking at my last sunlight, [810] and never again. No, Hades who lays all to rest leads me living to Acheron's shore, though I have not had my due portion of the chant that brings the bride, nor has any hymn been mine [815] for the crowning of marriage. Instead the lord of Acheron will be my groom.
