Θησεύς

παύετε θρήνων, παῖδες: ἐν οἷς γὰρ
χάρις χθονία ξύν᾽ ἀπόκειται,
πενθεῖν οὐ χρή: νέμεσις γάρ.

Ἀντιγόνη

Θησεύς

τίνος, παῖδες, χρείας ἀνύσαι;

Θησεύς

1765 παῖδες, ἀπεῖπεν ἐμοὶ κεῖνος
μήτε πελάζειν ἐς τούσδε τόπους
μήτ᾽ ἐπιφωνεῖν μηδένα θνητῶν
θήκην ἱεράν, ἣν κεῖνος ἔχει.
καὶ ταῦτά μ᾽ ἔφη πράσσοντα καλῶς
χώραν ἕξειν αἰὲν ἄλυπον.
ταῦτ᾽ οὖν ἔκλυεν δαίμων ἡμῶν
χὠ πάντ᾽ ἀΐων Διὸς Ὅρκος.

Ἀντιγόνη

ἀλλ᾽ εἰ τάδ᾽ ἔχει κατὰ νοῦν κείνῳ,
ταῦτ᾽ ἂν ἀπαρκοῖ: Θήβας δ᾽ ἡμᾶς

διακωλύσωμεν ἰόντα φόνον
τοῖσιν ὁμαίμοις.

Θησεύς

δράσω καὶ τάδε καὶ πάνθ᾽ ὁπόσ᾽ ἂν
μέλλω πράσσειν πρόσφορά θ᾽ ὑμῖν

πρὸς χάριν: οὐ δεῖ μ᾽ ἀποκάμνειν.

Χορός

ἀλλ᾽ ἀποπαύετε μηδ᾽ ἐπὶ πλείω
θρῆνον ἐγείρετε:
πάντως γὰρ ἔχει τάδε κῦρος.
