Chorus
[1192] If only that man had first passed into the depths of the sky or into Hades, the common home of all, [1195] before he taught the Greeks the shared plague of Ares' detested arms! Ah, those toils of his invention, which produced so many more toils! Look how that man has ravaged humanity!
