Ajax
[356] Ah, you clan staunch in maritime skill, who embarked and stroked the oar-blade upon the brine, in you, in you alone [360] I see a defense against suffering. Come, slay me on top of these!

Chorus
[362] Hush! Speak words of better omen! Do not cure evil by prescribing evil; do not increase the anguish of your mad disaster.
