Enter Talthybius and attendants, bearing the corpse of Astyanax on Hector's shield.

Chorus Leader
All me! ah me! new troubles fall on my country, to take the place of those that still are fresh! Behold, [1120] you hapless wives of Troy, the corpse of Astyanax, whom the Danaids have cruelly slain by hurling him from the battlements.
