Chorus
For it remains. We are skilled in plotting, powerful in execution, and we remember evil deeds; we are revered and hard for mortals to appease, pursuing our allotted office which is without rights, without honor, [385] separated from the gods in sunless light—our office that makes the path rough for seeing and dim-sighted alike.
