Euripides, Andromache (ed. David Kovacs), line 729 (search)
Menelaus You fly too readily into abusive talk. For my part, since I have come to Phthia against my will, I shall not do anything demeaning nor will I have it done to me. For the present, since I do not have unlimited time, I will go home. There is a city not far off from Sparta which previously was friendly but now is hostile. I mean to attack it as general and make it our subject. But when I have arranged matters there to my satisfaction, I shall return. Man to man with my son-in-law I sha we may not escape now only to be captured later! Peleus No cowardly woman-talk here, please! March on! Who will touch us? He shall smart for it that lays a hand on us! For by the gods' grace I rule over a throng of cavalry and many hoplites in Phthia. And I am still upright on my feet and no grey-beard, as you suppose. If I once look at that sort of man, I will send him flying, old man though I am. Even an old man, if he be brave, is more than a match for many young men. What use is bodily v

Hermione sung You have abandoned me, father, abandoned me, all alone on the shore with no sea-going oar! He will kill me, kill me! No more shall I dwell in this bridal house of mine! To which of the gods' statues shall I run as suppliant? Or shall I fall as a slave before the knees of my slave? O that I might soar up out of the land of Phthia to the place where the ship of pine passed through the Symplegades, first bark that ever sailed!

s, my daughter]. Enter by Eisodos B Orestes in travelling costume. Chorus Leader Look, here comes a stranger, a man of different hue from ourselves, hastening towards us with speedy step. Orestes Ladies who dwell in this foreign land, is this the house of Achilles' son and his royal residence? Chorus Leader It is. But who are you that ask this? Orestes My name is Orestes, and I am son of Agamemnon and Clytaemestra. I am going to the oracle of Zeus at Dodona. But since I have arrived in Phthia, I have decided to learn whether my kinswoman, Hermione of Sparta, is alive and enjoying good fortune. For though the land she dwells in is far off from me, she is nonetheless dear to me. Hermione kneels before Orestes and grasps his knees. Hermione O son of Agamemnon, appearing like a haven from storm to sailors, I beg you by your knees, have pity on me for the ill-luck you see me suffering, for my fortunes are not good! I place about your knees my arms, which have the force of suppliant

er, come from Sparta for this purpose. Orestes Yet he was bested by an old man's hand? Hermione Yes, by his sense of shame—and then he left me! Orestes I see: for what you've done you fear your husband. Hermione Yes. For he will be within his rights to kill me. What use to speak of it? But I entreat you in the name of Zeus, who is of our family, escort me to any place far away from this land or to my father's house. For this house seems to take voice and drive me forth, and the land of Phthia hates me. And if my husband leaves the oracle of Phoebus and comes home before then, he will kill me in great disgrace or I shall be a slave to the concubine who was once my slave. Orestes How then did you come to commit these grave sins, as some might call them? Hermione My undoing was bad women coming into the house. They puffed me up in folly by speaking in this vein: ‘Will you put up with this wretched captive in your house sharing in your marriage-bed? By the goddess, in my house she

Enter by Eisodos A Peleus with retinue. Peleus Women of Phthia, tell me the answer to my question: I have heard an indistinct rumor that Menelaus' daughter has left the house and is gone and have come here eager to learn whether this is true. For those who are at home must be solicitous of the fortunes of their loved ones abroad. Chorus Leader Peleus, the rumor you heard was true, and it is not right for me to conceal the troubles in whose midst I find myself: the queen has gone off in flight from this house. Peleus In fear of what? Continue your account. Chorus Leader Afraid from this house her husband might expel her. Peleus For planning murder of the boy, perhaps? Chorus Leader Yes, and in terror of her serving-woman. Peleus With whom did she leave home? Was it her father? Chorus Leader Agamemnon's son has led her from the land. Peleus In hope of what? Meaning to marry her? Chorus Leader Yes, and contriving death against your grandson. Peleus Crouching in ambush or

Enter Thetis aloft on the mechane. Chorus Leader Ah, what is this motion, what divine being do I see? Look, women, see! Here is a god who wings his way through the bright air and treads the ground of horse-pasturing Phthia.
Euripides, Hecuba (ed. E. P. Coleridge), line 444 (search)
Chorus O breeze, breeze of the sea, that wafts swift galleys, ocean's coursers, across the surging main! Where will you bear me, the sorrowful one? To whose house shall I be brought, to be his slave and chattel? to some haven in the Dorian land, or in Phthia, where men say Apidanus, father of fairest streams, makes fat and rich the soil?
Euripides, Iphigenia in Aulis (ed. E. P. Coleridge), line 80 (search)
I heard this, I commanded Talthybius with loud proclamation to disband the whole army, as I could never bear to slay my daughter. Whereupon my brother, bringing every argument to bear, persuaded me at last to face the crime; so I wrote in a folded scroll and sent to my wife, bidding her despatch our daughter to me on the pretence of wedding Achilles, at the same time magnifying his exalted rank and saying that he refused to sail with the Achaeans, unless a bride of our lineage should go to Phthia. Yes, this was the inducement I offered my wife, [inventing, as I did, a sham marriage for the maiden. Of all the Achaeans we alone know the real truth, Calchas, Odysseus, Menelaus and myself; but that which I then decided wrongly, I now rightly countermand again in this scroll, which you, old man, have found me opening and resealing beneath the shade of night. Up now and away with this missive to Argos, and I will tell you by word of mouth all that is written here, the contents of the fol

Chorus Next I sought the countless fleet, a wonder to behold, that I might fill my girlish eyes with gazing, a sweet delight. The warlike Myrmidons from Phthia held the right wing with fifty swift cruisers, upon whose sterns, right at the ends, stood Nereid goddesses in golden effigy, the ensign of Achilles' armament.

ed his father's halls? Agamemnon Peleus, who wedded the daughter of Nereus. Clytemnestra With the god's consent, or when he had taken her in spite of gods? Agamemnon Zeus betrothed her, and her guardian gave consent. Clytemnestra Where did he marry her? in the billows of the sea? Agamemnon In Chiron's home, at sacred Pelion's foot. Clytemnestra What! the abode ascribed to the race of Centaurs? Agamemnon It was there the gods celebrated the marriage feast of Peleus. Clytemnestra Did Thetis or his father train Achilles? Agamemnon Chiron brought him up, to prevent his learning the ways of the wicked. Clytemnestra Ah! wise the teacher, still wiser the one who gave his son. Agamemnon Such is the future husband of your daughter. Clytemnestra A blameless lord; but what city in Hellas is his? Agamemnon He dwells on the banks of the river Apidanus, in the borders of Phthia. Clytemnestra Will you convey our daughter there? Agamemnon He who takes her to himself will see to that.
