e words fall, it seems, from humble lips. For this woman is a slave, but her advice is worthy of the free. Hyllus What sort of advice, Mother? Tell me, if I may be told. Deianeira It brings shame, she says, that you have not sought to learn of your father and where he is, when he has been abroad for so long. Hyllus But I know where, if one can put any trust in rumors. Deianeira And in what region, my child, do you hear that he has settled? Hyllus Last year, they say, through all its length,he toiled as a slave to a Lydian woman. Deianeira If he endured even that, then one might believe any and all rumors. Hyllus Well, he has been released from that service, as I hear. Deianeira Where, then, is he reported to be now—alive, or dead? Hyllus He is waging or yet planning a war,they say, upon Euboea, the realm of Eurytus. Deianeira Are you aware, my son, that he has left with me sure oracles concerning that land?

Lichas For a vow, made when he was seeking to conquer and plunder the country of these women whom you see before you. Deianeira And these—who are they, by the gods, and whose daughters? They deserve pity, unless their misfortune deceives me. Lichas These are captives whom heselected as choice spoils for himself and for the gods when he sacked the city<

Hyllus If you need to hear, then I must tell all.After sacking the famous city of Eurytus, he went his way with the trophies and choice spoils of victory. There is a sea-washed headland of Euboea, Cape Cenaeum, where he marked out altars and a sacred grove to the Zeus of his fathers.There I first saw him, to the gratification of my desire. He was about to make a sacrifice rich in offerings when his own herald, Lichas, came to him from home with your gift, the deadly robe, in his hands. This he put on as you prescribedand then began his offering with twelve bulls, free from blemish, the prime of the spoil; but altogether he brought a hundred mixed victims to the altar. At first the miserable wretch prayed with serene soul and rejoiced in his ornate garb.But when the blood-fed flame began to blaze from the holy offerings and from the resinous pine, a sweat broke out on his skin and the tunic clung to his sides close-glued at every joint, as if by a craftsman's hand; there camea c
