Whereupon my brother, bringing every argument to bear, persuaded me at last to face the crime; so I wrote in a folded scroll and sent to my wife, bidding her despatch our daughter to me on the pretence of wedding Achilles, at the same time magnifying his exalted rank and saying that he refused to sail with the Achaeans, unless a bride of our lineage should go to Phthia. Yes, this was the inducement I offered my wife, [inventing, as I did, a sham marriage for the maiden. Of all the Achaeans we alone know the real truth, Calchas, Odysseus, Menelaus and myself; but that which I then decided wrongly, I now rightly countermand again in this scroll, which you, old man, have found me opening and resealing beneath the shade of night. Up now and away with this missive to Argos, and I will tell you by word of mouth all that is written here, the contents of the fol

Chorus Next I sought the countless fleet, a wonder to behold, that I might fill my girlish eyes with gazing, a sweet delight. The warlike Myrmidons from Phthia held the right wing with fifty swift cruisers, upon whose sterns, right at the ends, stood Nereid goddesses in golden effigy, the ensign of Achilles' armament.

Agamemnon Zeus betrothed her, and her guardian gave consent. Clytemnestra Where did he marry her? in the billows of the sea? Agamemnon In Chiron's home, at sacred Pelion's foot. Clytemnestra What! the abode ascribed to the race of Centaurs? Agamemnon It was there the gods celebrated the marriage feast of Peleus. Clytemnestra Did Thetis or his father train Achilles? Agamemnon Chiron brought him up, to prevent his learning the ways of the wicked. Clytemnestra Ah! wise the teacher, still wiser the one who gave his son. Agamemnon Such is the future husband of your daughter. Clytemnestra A blameless lord; but what city in Hellas is his? Agamemnon He dwells on the banks of the river Apidanus, in the borders of Phthia. Clytemnestra Will you convey our daughter there? Agamemnon He who takes her to himself will see to that.

r the murder. No! by Nereus, who begot my mother Thetis, in his home amid the flowing waves, never shall king Agamemnon touch your daughter, no! not even to the laying of a finger-tip upon her robe; or SipylusA mountain in Lycia, near which was shown the grave of Tantalus, the ancestor of the Atridae; the town of the same name was swallowed up in very early times by an earthquake., that frontier town of barbarism, the cradle of those chieftains' line, will be henceforth a city indeed, while Phthia's name will nowhere find mention. Calchas, the seer, shall rue beginning the sacrifice with his barley-meal and lustral water. Why, what is a seer? A man who with luck tells the truth sometimes, with frequent falsehoods, but when his luck deserts him, collapses then and there. It is not to secure a bride that I have spoken thus—there are maids unnumbered eager to have my love—no! but king Agamemnon has put an insult on me; he should have asked my leave to use my name as a means to catch th
