Aeschylus, Libation-Bearers, 290-299


χαλκηλάτῳ πλάστιγγι λυμανθὲν δέμας.he is even chased in exile from his country. And the god declared that to such as these it is not allowed to have a part either in the ceremonial cup or in the cordial libation; his father’s wrath, though unseen, bars him from the altar; no one receives him or lodges with him;


καὶ τοῖς τοιούτοις οὔτε κρατῆρος μέροςhe is even chased in exile from his country. And the god declared that to such as these it is not allowed to have a part either in the ceremonial cup or in the cordial libation; his father’s wrath, though unseen, bars him from the altar; no one receives him or lodges with him;


εἶναι μετασχεῖν, οὐ φιλοσπόνδου λιβόςhe is even chased in exile from his country. And the god declared that to such as these it is not allowed to have a part either in the ceremonial cup or in the cordial libation; his father’s wrath, though unseen, bars him from the altar; no one receives him or lodges with him;


βωμῶν τʼ ἀπείργειν οὐχ ὁρωμένην πατρὸςhe is even chased in exile from his country. And the god declared that to such as these it is not allowed to have a part either in the ceremonial cup or in the cordial libation; his father’s wrath, though unseen, bars him from the altar; no one receives him or lodges with him;


μῆνιν· δέχεσθαι δʼ οὔτε συλλύειν τινά.he is even chased in exile from his country. And the god declared that to such as these it is not allowed to have a part either in the ceremonial cup or in the cordial libation; his father’s wrath, though unseen, bars him from the altar; no one receives him or lodges with him;


πάντων δʼ ἄτιμον κἄφιλον θνῄσκειν χρόνῳand at last, despised by all, friendless, he perishes, shrivelled pitifully by a death that wastes him utterly away. Must I not put my trust in oracles such as these? Yet even if I do not trust them, the deed must still be done. For many impulses conspire to one conclusion.


κακῶς ταριχευθέντα παμφθάρτῳ μόρῳ.and at last, despised by all, friendless, he perishes, shrivelled pitifully by a death that wastes him utterly away. Must I not put my trust in oracles such as these? Yet even if I do not trust them, the deed must still be done. For many impulses conspire to one conclusion.


τοιοῖσδε χρησμοῖς ἆρα χρὴ πεποιθέναι;and at last, despised by all, friendless, he perishes, shrivelled pitifully by a death that wastes him utterly away. Must I not put my trust in oracles such as these? Yet even if I do not trust them, the deed must still be done. For many impulses conspire to one conclusion.


κεἰ μὴ πέποιθα, τοὔργον ἔστʼ ἐργαστέον.and at last, despised by all, friendless, he perishes, shrivelled pitifully by a death that wastes him utterly away. Must I not put my trust in oracles such as these? Yet even if I do not trust them, the deed must still be done. For many impulses conspire to one conclusion.


πολλοὶ γὰρ εἰς ἓν συμπίτνουσιν ἵμεροιand at last, despised by all, friendless, he perishes, shrivelled pitifully by a death that wastes him utterly away. Must I not put my trust in oracles such as these? Yet even if I do not trust them, the deed must still be done. For many impulses conspire to one conclusion.
