Euripides, Ion (ed. Robert Potter), line 355 (search)
mon pleasure alone. Ion Alas! This misfortune is in accord with my sorrow. Creusa Stranger, I think an unhappy mother longs for you also. Ion Do not draw me to griefs that I have forgotten! Creusa I am silent; can you fulfil what I am asking you about? Ion Do you know what part of your enquiry is especially ailing? Creusa What is not diseased for that wretched woman? Ion How shall the god prophesy what he wants to hide? Creusa He will, if he is indeed seated on the public tripod of Hellas. Ion He is ashamed of the deed; do not convict him. Creusa But the one who suffered this misfortune is in pain. Ion There is no one who will be your interpreter. If Phoebus appeared evil in his own home, he would rightly do some harm to the one who gave you the oracle. Cease this, lady. There must be no consultation contrary to the god. For we would come to such folly as that, if we shall work on the gods to say what they are not willing to say, either by sacrifice of sheep at the altar

or this he received the honor of marriage with Creusa; he was no native, but born an Achaean from Aeolus, the son of Zeus. Though married a long time they are childless; so they have come to this oracular shrine of Phoebus, in longing for a child. Loxias is driving fortune on to this point, nor is he forgetful, as he seems. For he will give his child to Xuthus on entering this shrine, and he will say the boy was born from Xuthus, so that Creusa may recognize the child when he comes to her house, and Phoebus' union with her may be kept secret, and the boy have his due. He will cause him, founder of the land of Asia, to be called by the name of Ion throughout Greece. But I will go to this cave of laurels, so that I may learn what is fated for the child; I see this son of Loxias coming out to adorn the gates before the shrine with laurel boughs. I am the first of the gods to give him that name, Ion, which he is about to have.Hermes vanishes. Ion and the attendants of the temple enter.

Before the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. The sun is about to rise. Hermes enters. Hermes Atlas, who wears away heaven, the ancient home of the gods, on his bronze shoulders, was the father of Maia by a goddess; she bore me, Hermes, to great Zeus; and I am the gods' servant. I have come to Delphi, this land where Phoebus from his central throne chants to mortals, always declaring the present and the future. For Hellas has a famous city, which received its name from Pallas of the golden lance; here Apollo forced a union on Creusa, the child of Erechtheus, where the rocks, turned to the north beneath the hill of Pallas' Athenian land, are called Macrai by the lords of Attica. Unknown to her father —such was the pleasure of the god— she bore the weight in her womb. When the time came, Creusa gave birth in the house to a child, and brought the infant to the same cave where the god had bedded her, and there exposed him to die in the round circle of a hollow cradle, observant of the custo

Ion What gain does this have for me, or what harm? Priestess The baby-clothes in which you were wrapped are hidden here. Ion You are producing a means to find my mother? Priestess Since the god wishes it; before, he did not. Ion O day of blessed discoveries! Priestess Now take them and find your mother. Ion I will go over all Asia and the boundaries of Europe. Priestess You yourself will know these things. For the sake of the god, I nurtured you, my son, and I will give you these, which he wished me, unbidden, to keep and save; why he wanted this, I do not understand. No mortal knew that I had these things, or where they were hidden. And now farewell; I take leave of you just as a mother does. Begin where you ought to seek your mother; first, if some Delphian girl gave you birth, and exposed you in this shrine; then, if she was someone of Hellas. You have everything from me, and from Phoebus, who took part in your fate.She goes into the temple after giving Ion the cradle.

he god gave him as a son the one whom he should first encounter, when he rushed away from the god. Creusa sung Oh, oh! Has he then sung out my childless, childless life? I shall live in a bereaved house, in loneliness. Tutor Who was proclaimed? Whom did the husband of this unhappy woman encounter? How and where did he see him? Chorus Leader Do you, my dear mistress, know the youth that was sweeping this temple? That is the boy. Creusa sung If only I might fly up to the soft sky, far from the land of Hellas, the western stars, such pain have I suffered, my friends! Tutor What name did his father give him? Do you know or does it remain unratified, in silence? Chorus Leader Ion, since he was the first to meet his father. Tutor And who was his mother? Chorus Leader I can not say. Her husband is gone—so that you may know everything from me, old man— to the holy tent to celebrate a feast and birth-rites for his son, in secret from her, and to give a public banquet to his new

Creusa, take your son and go to the land of Cecrops; set him on the royal throne. For he was born from Erechtheus and is fit to rule my land; and he will be famous throughout Hellas. He will have four sons, from one stock, and they will gave names to the land and the tribes of people who inhabit it. Geleon will be the first; then second . . . Hopletes and Argades, and the Aegicores will have a tribal name from my aegis. Their sons in turn, at the appointed time, will settle in the island cities of the Cyclades, and the lands along the shore, which will give strength to my land; they will colonize the plains of the two mainlands, Asia and Europe, on opposite sides; they will become famous under the name of Ionians, in homage to this boy's name. You and Xuthus will have children together: Dorus, from whom the Dorian state will be celebrated throughout the land of Pelops. The second son, Achaeus, will be king of the shore land near Rhion; and a people called after him will be ma
