Ajax, my lord, I beg you, do not talk this way!

Away with you! Will you not take yourself outside! [370] Ah, me! Ah, me!

By the gods I plead, give way and acquire good sense!

My rotten fortune!—I let slip from my grasp those men who were begging for punishment, [375] and fell instead on cattle with twisted horns and fine goats, making their dark blood flow!
