μάθοιμʼ ἄν, εἰ λέγοι τις ἐμφανῆ λόγον. ΧορόςATHENA: I shall understand, if someone would tell the story clearly. CHORUS: We drive murderers from their homes. ATHENA: And where is the end of flight for the killer? CHORUS: Where joy is absent and unknown. ATHENA: And would you drive this man with your shrieks to such flight? CHORUS: Yes, for he thought it right to be his mother's murderer. ATHENA: Through other compulsions, or in fear of someone's wrath? CHORUS: Where is there a spur so keen as to compel the murder of a mother? ATHENA: Two parties are present; only half the case is heard. CHORUS: But he will not receive an oath nor does he want to give one.
