Agamemnon I might do that unnoticed, but there will be another thing I cannot. Menelaus What is that? You must not fear the mob too much. Agamemnon Calchas will tell the Argive army his oracles. Menelaus Not if he should die before that—an easy matter. Agamemnon The whole tribe of seers is a curse with its ambition. Menelaus Yes, and good for nothing and useless, when among us. Agamemnon Has the thought, which is rising in my mind, no terrors for you? Menelaus How can I understand your meaning, unless you declare it? Agamemnon The son of Sisyphus knows all.
