Ah, loyal handmaidens of the house, low long will it be before we display the power that lies in our mouths to do Orestes service? [720]

O hallowed earth, and hallowed barrow raised high that now lies on the royal form of the commander of the fleet, now hear me, now lend me aid! [725] Now is the hour for Persuasion with her guile to join forces with him, and for Hermes of the nether world, who works in stealth, to direct this encounter of the deadly sword.Enter Orestes' Nurse
