Athens (Greece) (search for this): card 599
d. Amphitryon Is the monster really lodged in the house of Eurystheus? Heracles The grove of Demeter and the city of Hermione have him now. Amphitryon Eurystheus does not know that you have returned to the upper world? Heracles He does not; I came here first to learn your news. Amphitryon How is it you were so long beneath the earth? Heracles I stayed awhile attempting to bring back Theseus from Hades, father. Amphitryon Where is he? gone to his native land? Heracles He set out for Athens, glad to have escaped from the lower world. Come now, children, attend your father to the house. My entering in is fairer in your eyes, I think, than my going out. Oh, take heart, and no more let the tears stream from your eyes; you too, my wife, collect your courage, cease from fear; let go my robe; for I cannot fly away, nor have I any wish to flee from those I love. Ah! they do not loose their hold, but cling to my garments all the more; were you on the razor's edge of danger? Well, I m

aiden queen of hell, I will not neglect to greet first of all the gods beneath my roof. Amphitryon Did you really go to the house of Hades, my son? Heracles Yes, and brought to the light that three-headed monster. Amphitryon Did you conquer him in fight, or receive him from the goddess? Heracles In fight; for I had been lucky enough to witness the rites of the initiated. Amphitryon Is the monster really lodged in the house of Eurystheus? Heracles The grove of Demeter and the city of Hermione have him now. Amphitryon Eurystheus does not know that you have returned to the upper world?

Thebes (Greece) (search for this): card 60
Megara Old warrior, who once razed the citadel of the Taphians leading on the troops of Thebes to glory, how uncertain are the gods' dealings with man! For I, as far as concerned my father, was never an outcast of fortune, for he was once accounted a man of might by reason of his wealth, possessed as he was of royal power, for which long spears are launched at the lives of the fortunate through love of it; children too he had; and he gave me to your son, matching me in glorious marriage with Heracles. And now all that is dead and gone from us; and I and you, old friend, are doomed to die, and these children of Heracles, whom I am guarding beneath my wing as a bird keeps her tender chicks under her. And they one after another keep asking me: “Mother, tell us, where is our father gone from the land? what is he doing? when will he return?” Thus they inquire for their father, in childish perplexity; while I put them off with excuses, inventing stories; but still I wonder if it is he
Aetna (Italy) (search for this): card 637
Chorus Dear to me is youth always, but old age is hanging over my head, a burden heavier than Aetna's crags, casting its pall of gloom upon my eyes. Oh! never may the wealth of Asia's kings tempt me to barter for houses stored with gold my happy youth, which is in wealth and poverty alike most fair! But old age is gloomy and deadly; I hate it; let it sink beneath the waves! Would it had never found its way to the homes and towns of mortal men, but were still drifting on for ever down the wind.

Delos (Greece) (search for this): card 687
Chorus The maids of Delos raise their song of joy, circling round the temple gates in honor of Leto's fair son, the graceful dancer; so I with my old lips will cry aloud songs of joy at your palace-doors, like the swan, aged singer; for there is a good theme for minstrelsy; he is the son of Zeus; yet high above his noble birth tower his deeds of prowess, for his toil secured this life of calm for man, having destroyed all fearsome beasts.
Thebes (Greece) (search for this): card 763
Chorus Dances, dances and banquets now prevail throughout the holy town of Thebes. For change from tears, change from sorrow give birth to song. The new king is gone; our former monarch rules, having made his way even from the harbor of Acheron. Hope beyond all expectation is fulfilled.

Thebes (Greece) (search for this): card 781
Chorus O Ismenus, deck yourself with garlands! Break forth into dancing, you paved streets of our seven-gated city! come Dirce, fount of waters fair; and joined with her you nymphs of Asopus, come from your father's waves to add your voices to our hymn, the victor's prize that Heracles has won. O Pythian rock with forests crowned, and haunts of the Muses on Helicon! you will come to my city and her walls with cries of joy; where the earth-born crop sprang to view, a warrior-host with shields of brass, who are handing on their realm to children's children, a divine light to Thebes.
Acheron (New Zealand) (search for this): card 822
father Zeus ever suffer me or Hera to harm him. But now that he has accomplished the labors of Eurystheus, Hera wishes to brand him with the guilt of shedding kindred blood by slaying his own children, and I wish it also. Come then, unwed maid, child of black Night, harden your heart relentlessly, send forth frenzy upon this man, confound his mind even to the slaying of his children, drive him, goad him wildly on his mad career, shake out the sails of death, that when he has conveyed over Acheron's ferry that fair group of children by his own murderous hand, he may learn to know how fiercely against him the wrath of Hera burns and may also experience mine; otherwise, if he should escape punishment, the gods will become as nothing, while man's power will grow. Madness Of noble parents was I born, the daughter of Night, sprung from the blood of Ouranos; and these prerogatives I hold, not to use them in anger against friends, nor do I have any joy in visiting the homes of men; and I
