Chorus
[221] What report of the fiery warrior have you revealed to us, unbearable, nor yet escapable— [225] a report which the great Danaans propound, which their powerful storytelling spreads! Ah, me, I shudder at the future's advancing step. In public view the man will die [230] because the dark sword in his frenzied hand massacred the herds and the horse-guiding herdsmen.
