Aeschylus, Eumenides, 198-199


ἄναξ Ἄπολλον, ἀντάκουσον ἐν μέρει.CHORUS: Lord Apollo, hear our reply in turn. You yourself are not partially guilty of this deed; you alone have done it all, and are wholly guilty. APOLLO: What do you mean? Draw out the length of your speech this much. CHORUS: Through your oracle, you directed the stranger to kill his mother. APOLLO: Through my oracle, I directed him to exact vengeance for his father. What of it? CHORUS: And then you agreed to take the fresh blood on yourself. APOLLO: And I ordered him to turn for expiation to this house. CHORUS: And do you then rebuke us, the ones who escorted him here? APOLLO: Yes, for you are not fit to approach this house. CHORUS: But this has been assigned to us — APOLLO: What is this office of yours? Boast of your fine privilege!
