words of this man. For you have long been in anguish whether the men who have now arrived would ever return. Enter Alcmene from the temple. Alcmene Why, Iolaus, has this whole temple been filled with shouts? Has a herald come a second time from Argos to do you violence? My strength may be weak, stranger, but you must realize this: you cannot remove these children while I still live. May I no longer be regarded as Heracles' mother! If you lay a hand on them, you will struggle ignominiously wihildren while I still live. May I no longer be regarded as Heracles' mother! If you lay a hand on them, you will struggle ignominiously with a pair of grey-heads. Iolaus Courage, old woman, do not be afraid. No herald has come from Argos with hostile message. Alcmene Then why did you raise the shout that is the herald of fear? Iolaus So that you would come out of the temple and approach him. Alcmene I don't understand this. Who is he? Iolaus He brings word that your grandson has returned.

Chorus It is dreadful that a prosperous city like Mycenae, famed for its war-strength, should nurse a hatred against our land. But it is cowardly, o my city, if we are to hand over suppliant strangers at the behest of Argos. Zeus is my ally, I have no fear, Zeus is justly grateful to me: never shall I reveal the gods to be less good than mortals.

Chorus But, lady Athena, since yours is the land and the city, and you are its mother, its mistress, and its guardian, divert to some other land the man who is unjustly bringing here from Argos the spear-hurling army! For by our valor we do not deserve to be cast from our homes.

ell you all. When we had drawn up our hoplite lines facing one another, Hyllus, stepping from his four-horse chariot, took his stand in the middle of the space between the armies. Then he said, ‘Argive general, why can we not let this land Argos be at peace? You will not needlessly make an enemy of Athens,> and you will not harm to Mycenae by depriving it of its soldiery. Rather, join in single combat with me, and either, if you kill me, take away the children of Heracles, or, if you areand they released at once the propitious stream of blood from the necks of the cattle. Others mounted their chariots, while the foot-soldiers put flank against flank under the protection of their shields. The leader of the Athenians gave his men such exhortation as a brave man ought to give: ‘Fellow-citizens, now must a man protect the land that gave him birth and raised him up.’ But the enemy general for his part fervently urged his allies that they not consent to disgrace Argos and Myc

Chorus What is your errand? To win the right to address the city? Iolaus We ask not to be surrendered, not to be dragged off against the will of your gods to Argos. Herald But this will not satisfy your owners. They have control of you and have found you here. Chorus It is right to respect the gods' suppliants, stranger. They should not be made to leave their sanctuaries with violence. For Lady Justice will not be so treated. Herald Then send these chattel of Eurystheus from your land and I shall not use force. Chorus It is godless to yield up a suppliant band of strangers. Herald Yes, but it is a fine thing to keep one's foot clear of trouble and to hit on the superior plan.

he shall at all events have good things spoken of him as befits a noble man. But now that he is out of the way, should not I, who am hated by these children and aware of their inherited hatred of me, have left no stone unturned in machinations to kill or exile them? If I did so, my interests were likely to be safe. You, no doubt, claim that if you had taken up my fortunes you would not have hounded the hostile offspring of the lion your enemy but would have modestly allowed them to live in Argos. You will convince no one of this. Now, accordingly, since they did not kill me on the battlefield when I was eager to die, by the usages of the Greeks my death, for the man who kills me, is an unholy act; and it was sober good judgment on the city's part that they spared my life, setting a much higher value on the god than on their hatred of me. You have spoken, you have heard my reply: henceforth you must invoke me as the Avenger and the Gracious One.I give Pearson's translation of the t
