Aeschylus, Agamemnon, 67-71


Τρωσί θʼ ὁμοίως. ἔστι δʼ ὅπη νῦνThings are where things are, and, as fate has willed


ἔστι· τελεῖται δʼ ἐς τὸ πεπρωμένον·So shall they be fulfilled.


οὔθʼ ὑποκαίων οὔθʼ ὑπολείβωνNot gently-grieving, not just doling out


οὔτε δακρύων ἀπύρων ἱερῶνThe drops of expiation — no, nor tears distilled —


ὀργὰς ἀτενεῖς παραθέλξει.Shall he we know of bring the hard about


ὀργὰς ἀτενεῖς παραθέλξει.To soft — that intense ire


ὀργὰς ἀτενεῖς παραθέλξει.At those mock rites unsanctified by fire.
