Slaves stationed, his the Owner’s altar close to. 1039. Descend from out this car, nor be high-minded 1040. And truly they do say Alkmené’s child once 1041. Bore being sold, slaves’ barley-bread his living. 1042. If, then, necessity of this lot o’erbalance, 1043. Much is the favour of old-wealthy masters: 1044. For those who, never hoping, made fine harvest 1045. Are harsh to slaves in all things, beyond measure. 1046. Thou hast — with us — such usage as law warrants. CHOROS. 1047. To thee it was, she paused plain speech from speaking. 1048. Being inside the fatal nets — obeying, 1049. Thou mayst obey: but thou mayst disobey too! KLUTAIMNESTRA. 1050. Why, if she is not, in the swallow’s fashion, 1051. Possessed of voice that’s unknown and barbaric, 1052. I, with speech — speaking in mind’s scope — persuade her. CHOROS. 1053. Follow! The best — as things now stand — she speaks of. 1054. Obey thou, leaving this thy car-enthronement! KLUTAIMNESTRA. 1055. Well, with this thing at door, for me no leisure 1056. To waste time: as concerns the hearth mid-navelled, 1057. Already stand the sheep for fireside slaying 1058. By those who never hoped to have such favour. 1059. If thou, then, aught of this wilt do, delay not! 1060. But if thou, being witless, tak’st no word in, 1061. Speak thou, instead of voice, with hand as CHOROS. 1062. She seems a plain interpreter in need of, 1063. The stranger! and her way — a beast’s new-captured! KLUTAIMNESTRA. 1064. Why, she is mad, sure, — hears her own bad senses, — 1065. Who, while she comes, leaving a town new-captured, 1066. Yet knows not how to bear the bit o’ the bridle 1067. Before she has out-frothed her bloody fierceness. 1068. Not I — throwing away more words — will shamed be! CHOROS. 1069. But I, — for I compassionate, — will chafe not. 1070. Come, O unhappy one, this car vacating, 1071. Yielding to this necessity, prove yoke’s use! KASSANDRA. 1072. Otototoi, Gods, Earth, — 1073. Apollon, Apollon! CHOROS. 1074. Why didst thou 1206. But he was athlete to me — huge grace breathing! CHOROS. 1207. Well, to the work of children, went ye law’s way? KASSANDRA. 1208. Having consented, I played false to Loxias. CHOROS. 1209. Already when the wits inspired possessed of? KASSANDRA. 1210. Already townsmen all their woes I foretold. CHOROS. 1211. How wast thou then unhurt by Loxias’ anger? KASSANDRA. 1212. I no one aught persuaded, when I sinned thus. CHOROS. 1213. To us, at least, now sooth to say thou seemest. KASSANDRA.
1217. Behold ye those there, in the household seated, — 1218. Young ones, — of dreams approaching to the figures?

1254. For Puthian oracles, thy speech, and hard too. KASSANDRA 1255. Papai: what fire this! and it comes upon me! 1256. Ototoi, Lukeion Apollon, ah me — me! 1257. She, the two-footed lioness that sleeps with
1264. Both wands and, round my neck, oracular fillets? 1265. Thee, at least, ere my own fate will I ruin: 1266. Go, to perdition falling! Boons exchange we — 1267. Some other Até in my stead make wealthy! 1268. See there — himself, Apollon stripping from me 1269. The oracular garment! having looked upon me 1270. — Even in these adornments, laughed by friends at, 1271. As good as foes, i’ the balance weighed: and vainly — 1272. For, called crazed stroller, — as I had been gipsy, 1273. Beggar, unhappy, starved to death, — I bore it. 1274. And now the Prophet — prophet me undoing, 1275. Has led away to these so deadly fortunes! 1276. Instead of my sire’s altar, waits the hack-block 1277. She struck with first warm bloody sacrificing! 1278. Yet nowise unavenged of gods will death be:
1282. Back shall he come, — for friends, copestone these curses!
1284. Him shall bring hither his fallen sire’s prostration.
1288. Thus by the judgment of the gods are faring. 1289. I go, will suffer, will submit to dying! 1290. But, Haides’ gates — these same I call, I speak to, 1291. And pray that on an opportune blow chancing, 1292. Without a struggle, — blood the calm death bringing 1293. In easy outflow, — I this eye may close up! CHOROS. 1295. O much unhappy, but, again, much learned 1296. Woman, long hast thou outstretched! But if truly 1297. Thou knowest thine own fate, how comes that, like to 1298. A god-led steer, to altar bold thou treadest? KASSANDRA. 1299. There’s no avoidance, — strangers, no some time more! CHOROS. 1300. He last is, anyhow, by time advantaged. KASSANDRA. 1301. It comes, the day: I shall by flight gain little. CHOROS. 1302. But know thou patient art from thy brave spirit! KASSANDRA. 1303. Such things hears no one of the happy-fortuned. CHOROS. 1304. But gloriously to die — for man is grace, sure. KASSANDRA.
1322. Yet once for all, to speak a speech, I fain am: 1323. No dirge, mine for myself! The sun I pray to, 1324. Fronting his last light! — to my own avengers — 1325. That from my hateful slayers they exact too 1326. Pay for the dead slave — easy-managed hand’s work! CHOROS.
1362. What, and, protracting life, shall we give way thus 1363. To the disgracers of our home, these rulers? CHOROS 9. 1364. Why, ’t is unbearable: but to die is better: 1365. For death than tyranny is the riper finish! CHOROS 10. '. None

1.38. Idem iam diu non facit. Ut igitur nunc in minore gloria est, quia minus oraculorum veritas excellit, sic tum nisi summa veritate in tanta gloria non fuisset. Potest autem vis illa terrae, quae mentem Pythiae divino adflatu concitabat, evanuisse vetustate, ut quosdam evanuisse et exaruisse amnes aut in alium cursum contortos et deflexos videmus. Sed, ut vis, acciderit; magna enim quaestio est; modo maneat id, quod negari non potest, nisi omnem historiam perverterimus, multis saeclis verax fuisse id oraculum.

Catonem, qui tum ibi erant, doctos homines, vehementer esse perterritos; paucis sane post diebus ex Pharsalia fuga venisse Labienum; qui cum interitum exercitus nuntiavisset, reliqua vaticinationis brevi esse confecta.
1.79. Quid? amores ac deliciae tuae, Roscius, num aut ipse aut pro eo Lanuvium totum mentiebatur? Qui cum esset in cunabulis educareturque in Solonio, qui est campus agri Lanuvini, noctu lumine apposito experrecta nutrix animadvertit puerum dormientem circumplicatum serpentis amplexu. Quo aspectu exterrita clamorem sustulit. Pater autem Roscii ad haruspices rettulit, qui responderunt nihil illo puero clarius, nihil nobilius fore. Atque hanc speciem Pasiteles caelavit argento et noster expressit Archias versibus. Quid igitur expectamus? an dum in foro nobiscum di immortales, dum in viis versentur, dum domi? qui quidem ipsi se nobis non offerunt, vim autem suam longe lateque diffundunt, quam tum terrae cavernis includunt, tum hominum naturis implicant. Nam terrae vis Pythiam Delphis incitabat, naturae Sibyllam. Quid enim? non videmus, quam sint varia terrarum genera? ex quibus et mortifera quaedam pars est, ut et Ampsancti in Hirpinis et in Asia Plutonia, quae vidimus, et sunt partes agrorum aliae pestilentes, aliae salubres, aliae, quae acuta ingenia gigt, aliae, quae retunsa; quae omnia fiunt et ex caeli varietate et ex disparili adspiratione terrarum.
1.89. Quid? Asiae rex Priamus nonne et Helenum filium et Cassandram filiam divites habebat, alterum auguriis, alteram mentis incitatione et permotione divina? Quo in genere Marcios quosdam fratres, nobili loco natos, apud maiores nostros fuisse scriptum videmus. Quid? Polyidum Corinthium nonne Homerus et aliis multa et filio ad Troiam proficiscenti mortem praedixisse commemorat? Omnino apud veteres, qui rerum potiebantur, iidem auguria tenebant; ut enim sapere, sic divinare regale ducebant. Testis est nostra civitas, in qua et reges augures et postea privati eodem sacerdotio praediti rem publicam religionum auctoritate rexerunt.''. None
1.38. Therefore, as at present its glory has waned because it is no longer noted for the truth of its prophecies, so formerly it would not have enjoyed so exalted a reputation if it had not been trustworthy in the highest degree. Possibly, too, those subterraneous exhalations which used to kindle the soul of the Pythian priestess with divine inspiration have gradually vanished in the long lapse of time; just as within our own knowledge some rivers have dried up and disappeared, while others, by winding and twisting, have changed their course into other channels. But explain the decadence of the oracle as you wish, since it offers a wide field for discussion, provided you grant what cannot be denied without distorting the entire record of history, that the oracle at Delphi made true prophecies for many hundreds of years. 20
1.66. Therefore the human soul has an inherent power of presaging or of foreknowing infused into it from without, and made a part of it by the will of God. If that power is abnormally developed, it is called frenzy or inspiration, which occurs when the soul withdraws itself from the body and is violently stimulated by a divine impulse, as in the following instance, where Hecuba says to Cassandra:But why those flaming eyes, that sudden rage?And whither fled that sober modesty,Till now so maidenly and yet so wise?and Cassandra answers:O mother, noblest of thy noble sex!I have been sent to utter prophecies:Against my will Apollo drives me madTo revelation make of future ills.O virgins! comrades of my youthful hours,My mission shames my father, best of men.O mother dear! great loathing for myselfAnd grief for thee I feel. For thou hast borneTo Priam goodly issue — saving me,Tis sad that unto thee the rest bring weal,I woe; that they obey, but I oppose.What a tender and pathetic poem, and how suitable to her character! though it is not altogether relevant, I admit. 1.67. However, the point which I wish to press, that true prophecies are made during frenzy, has found expression in the following lines:It comes! it comes! that bloody torch, in fireEnwrapped, though hid from sight these many years!Bring aid, my countrymen, and quench its flames!It is not Cassandra who next speaks, but a god in human form:Already, on the mighty deep is builtA navy swift that hastes with swarms of woe,80ºIts ships are drawing nigh with swelling sails,And bands of savage men will fill our shores. 32 1.68. I seem to be relying for illustrations on myths drawn from tragic poets. But you yourself are my authority for an instance of the same nature, and yet it is not fiction but a real occurrence. Gaius Coponius, a man of unusual capacity and learning, came to you at Dyrrachium while he, as praetor, was in command of the Rhodian fleet, and told you of a prediction made by a certain oarsman from one of the Rhodian quinqueremes. The prediction was that in less than thirty days Greece would be bathed in blood; Dyrrachium would be pillaged; its defenders would flee to their ships and, as they fled, would see behind them the unhappy spectacle of a great conflagration; but the Rhodian fleet would have a quick passage home. This story gave you some concern, and it caused very great alarm to those cultured men, Marcus Varro and Marcus Cato, who were at Dyrrachium at the time. In fact, a few days later Labienus reached Dyrrachium in flight from Pharsalus, with the news of the loss of the army. The rest of the prophecy was soon fulfilled.
1.79. And what about your beloved and charming friend Roscius? Did he lie or did the whole of Lanuvium lie for him in telling the following incident: In his cradle days, while he was being reared in Solonium, a plain in the Lanuvian district, his nurse suddenly awoke during the night and by the light of a lamp observed the child asleep with a snake coiled about him. She was greatly frightened at the sight and gave an alarm. His father referred the occurrence to the soothsayers, who replied that the boy would attain unrivalled eminence and glory. Indeed, Pasiteles has engraved the scene in silver and our friend Archias has described it in verse.Then what do we expect? Do we wait for the immortal gods to converse with us in the forum, on the street, and in our homes? While they do not, of course, present themselves in person, they do diffuse their power far and wide — sometimes enclosing it in caverns of the earth and sometimes imparting it to human beings. The Pythian priestess at Delphi was inspired by the power of the earth and the Sibyl by that of nature. Why need you marvel at this? Do we not see how the soils of the earth vary in kind? Some are deadly, like that about Lake Ampsanctus in the country of the Hirpini and that of Plutonia in Asia, both of which I have seen. Even in the same neighbourhood, some parts are salubrious and some are not; some produce men of keen wit, others produce fools. These diverse effects are all the result of differences in climate and differences in the earths exhalations.
1.89. Furthermore, did not Priam, the Asiatic king, have a son, Helenus, and a daughter, Cassandra, who prophesied, the first by means of auguries and the other when under a heaven-inspired excitement and exaltation of soul? In the same class, as we read in the records of our forefathers, were those famous Marcian brothers, men of noble birth. And does not Homer relate that Polyidus of Corinth not only made many predictions to others, but that he also foretold the death of his own son, who was setting out for Troy? As a general rule among the ancients the men who ruled the state had control likewise of augury, for they considered divining, as well as wisdom, becoming to a king. Proof of this is afforded by our State wherein the kings were augurs; and, later, private citizens endowed with the same priestly office ruled the republic by the authority of religion. 41''. None
