φαιοχίτωνες καὶ πεπλεκτανημέναιAh, ah! You handmaidens, look at them there: like Gorgons, wrapped in sable garments, entwined with


πυκνοῖς δράκουσιν· οὐκέτʼ ἂν μείναιμʼ ἐγώ. Χορόςwarming snakes! I can stay no longer. Chorus


τίνες σε δόξαι, φίλτατʼ ἀνθρώπων πατρίWhat fantasies disturb you, dearest of sons to your father? Wait, do not be all overcome by fear. Orestes


στροβοῦσιν; ἴσχε, μὴ φόβου νικῶ πολύ. ὈρέστηςWhat fantasies disturb you, dearest of sons to your father? Wait, do not be all overcome by fear. Orestes


οὐκ εἰσὶ δόξαι τῶνδε πημάτων ἐμοί·To me these are no imagined troubles. For there indeed are the hounds of wrath to avenge my mother. Chorus


σαφῶς γὰρ αἵδε μητρὸς ἔγκοτοι κύνες. ΧορόςTo me these are no imagined troubles. For there indeed are the hounds of wrath to avenge my mother. Chorus


ποταίνιον γὰρ αἷμά σοι χεροῖν ἔτι·It is that the blood is still fresh on your hands; this is the cause of the disorder that assails your wits. Orestes


ἐκ τῶνδέ τοι ταραγμὸς ἐς φρένας πίτνει. ὈρέστηςIt is that the blood is still fresh on your hands; this is the cause of the disorder that assails your wits. Orestes


ἄναξ Ἄπολλον, αἵδε πληθύουσι δήO lord Apollo, look! Now they come in troops, and from their eyes they drip loathsome blood! Chorus


κἀξ ὀμμάτων στάζουσιν αἷμα δυσφιλές. ΧορόςO lord Apollo, look! Now they come in troops, and from their eyes they drip loathsome blood! Chorus
