Chorus
Or perhaps they will soon draw near to the pastures on the west of Oea's snowy rock, [1060] fleeing on young horses or in chariots racing full speed. He will be caught! [1065] Terrible is the neighboring Ares, terrible the might of the followers of Theseus. Yes, the steel of every bridle flashes, [1070] and against their opponents charges forward our whole cavalry, who honor horse-riding Athena, and the earth-girdling Sea-god, the dear son of Rhea.
