How true it is. In the loss of so great an army [1015] I have indeed been dealt a blow, wretched as I am.

What that belonged to Persia, unfortunate one, has not been destroyed?

Do you see this remnant of my royal robe?

Yes, I do indeed.

[1020] And this quiver—

What is this you say has been saved?

Treasury for shafts?

Truly a small remnant from an ample store.

We have been deprived of defenders.

[1025] Ionia's people shrink not from the spear.
