 Apollo, Apollo! God of the Ways,1my destroyer! For you have destroyed me—and utterly—this second time.2 Chorus
I think that she is about to prophesy about her own miseries. The divine gift still abides even in the soul of one enslaved.
2 Ἀπόλλων is here derived from Ἀπόλλυμι, “destroy”—nomen omen. The god had “destroyed” her the first time in making vain his gift of prophecy （1209 ff.）; whereby she became the object of derision in Troy.
