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.

man, who makes his way through the god's gold-laden precincts and the treasuries given by mortals? He has come here a second time for the same purpose as his earlier visit and means to sack the temple of Phoebus.’ Thereafter tumult ran through the city. The authorities flocked into the council-chamber, and of their own accord those who had charge of the god's property posted a watch in the porticoed halls. We, knowing as yet nothing of these things, took sheep, nurslings of the grass of Parnassus, and going on our way stood next to the altars together with Delphian diviners and those charged with looking after foreigners.
