Chorus In my eyes you were much to be pitied when you came, woman of Troy, to the house of my lords. But I hold my peace from fear （though I have pity on your lot） lest the child of Zeus's daughter learn that I wish you w
Enter from the skeneHermione, dressed and bejewelled in impressive style. Hermione The finery of luxurious gold I have about my head and this variegated cloth I wear on my body—I did not wear coming these on my arrival here as the first-fruits of the house of Achilles or of Peleus, but my father Menelaus gave them to me from the city of Sparta together with a large dowry, and therefore I may speak my mind. [So it is with these words that I reply to all of you.] But though you are a slave woman won by the spear, you mean to throw me out of this house and take possession of it: because of your poisons I am hated by my husband, and my womb is perishing unfruitful because of you. The minds of Asian women are clever at such things. But I shall stop you from carrying out this plan, and the temple of the Nereid here will profit you not at all, not its altar or its sanctuary, but you will be put to death.

Formerly, though I was sunk in misfortune, the hope always drew me to him that if the child lived my family would find some kind of help and defense. But ever since Neoptolemus married Hermione, spurning my bed since he was master and I a slave, I have been hounded with cruel ill-treatment by her.

This bed I received unwillingly to begin with and now I have relinquished it. Great Zeus be my witness that it was against my will that I became sharer in this bed! But I cannot persuade her of this, and she wants to kill me. Menelaus her father is acting as his daughter's accomplice in this, and he is now in the house, having come from Sparta for this very purpose. In fear I have come and taken my seat at this shrine of Thetis near the house on the chance that it may save me from death. For Peleu
Chorus Great were the woes—I see it now—that were set in motion when to the glen of Ida Hermes, son of Maia and of Zeus, came and brought the goddesses three, lovely team beneath a lovely yoke, helmeted for the fray, the hateful strife for the prize of beauty, to the shepherd-lodge, to the solitary young man who tended the sheep and to his lonely hearth and h
Chorus When the goddesses came to the shady glen, in the streams of mountain springs they bathed their radiant bodies, and then vying with each other in extravagant words of malicious intent they came to the son of Priam. Aphrodite was victorious by her wheedling words, delightful to hear but entailing bitter destruction for the luckless city of the Phrygians, the citadel of Troy.
