Euripides, Bacchae, 676-679


γυναιξὶ τόνδε τῇ δίκῃ προσθήσομεν. Ἄγγελοςthe more I will punish this one here who taught the women these tricks. Messenger


ἀγελαῖα μὲν βοσκήματʼ ἄρτι πρὸς λέπαςMESSENGER: I was just driving the herds of kine to a ridge of the hill as I fed them, as the sun shot forth his rays and made the earth grow warm; when lo! I see three revel-bands of women; Autonoe was chief of one, thy mother Agave of the second, while Ino's was the third. There they lay asleep, all tired out; some were resting on branches of the pine, others had laid their heads in careless ease on oak-leaves piled upon the ground, observing all modesty; not, as thou sayest, seeking to gratify their lusts alone amid the woods, by wine and soft flute-music maddened. Anon in their midst thy mother uprose and cried aloud to wake them from their sleep, when she heard the lowing of my horned kine. And up they started to their feet, brushing from their eyes sleep's quickening dew, a wondrous sight of grace and modesty, young and old and maidens yet unwed. First o'er their shoulders they let stream their hair; then all did gird their fawn-skins up, who hitherto had left the fastenings loose, girdling the dappled hides with snakes that licked their cheeks. Others fondled in their arms gazelles or savage whelps of wolves, and suckled them-young mothers these with babes at home, whose breasts were still full of milk; crowns they wore of ivy or of oak or blossoming convolvulus.


ἀγελαῖα μὲν βοσκήματʼ ἄρτι πρὸς λέπαςThe herds of grazing cattle were just climbing up the hill, at the time when the sun sends forth its rays, warming the earth.


μόσχων ὑπεξήκριζον, ἡνίχʼ ἥλιοςThe herds of grazing cattle were just climbing up the hill, at the time when the sun sends forth its rays, warming the earth.


ἀκτῖνας ἐξίησι θερμαίνων χθόνα.The herds of grazing cattle were just climbing up the hill, at the time when the sun sends forth its rays, warming the earth.
